Mauricio Domogan: The Best Mayor of Baguio City

Mauricio "Morris" G. Domogan is a Filipino lawyer and politician and is the longest-serving mayor of the city of Baguio.

A member of the Lakas Kampi CMD party, Domogan served three terms as mayor of Baguio, initially as acting mayor from July to October 1992, and officially as the new mayor in October 1992 after succeeding the mayoralty post from Ramon Labo after he was disqualified due to his citizenship status, until 2001, and again from 2010 to 2019.

He has also been elected to three terms as a Member of the House of Representatives of the Philippines, representing the Lone District of Baguio City.

He first won the election to Congress in 2001 and was re-elected in 2004 and 2007.

In 2019, barred by the constitution to a fourth term, he ran once more for the city's lone congressional seat, against the incumbent Congressman, Marquez Go, to whom Domogan suffered the first loss in his political career.

Domogan was born on October 10, 1946, and traces his roots to the remote sitio of Bab-asig, Patiacan, Quirino (formerly Angaki), Ilocos Sur, and within the boundaries of Besao, Mountain Province, and Tubo, Abra.

He finished his elementary education at the Patiacan Elementary School in 1961 and finished his secondary education at the Lepanto High School. He obtained his BA degree from the University of Baguio in 1969 and finished his Bachelor of Laws at the University of the Cordilleras in 1973.

Before his political career, he was a private practitioner from 1974 to 1992, focusing on labor issues, and was counsel to several unions including Hyatt Terraces Employees Union and Baguio Country Club Employees Union to name a few.
