One of the young board members of La Union, Paolo Ortega continues to champion leadership advocacies that have become the trademark of his fourteen years in public service.


BM Paolo chairs the committees on Peace and Order, Public Safety and Finance and Budget and Appropriations.


During his earlier years as a City Councilor, together with various stakeholders, “PAOwer” was created- an organization focused on education , leadership , IT, agri- tourism, sports and recreation.


He also served as the Provincial President of the Philippine Councilor’s League and currently the Regional Chairman of the National Movement of Young Legislators, Region I (NMYL-R1). This opened a door for him to be a part of the Young Leaders for Good Governance (YLGG Batch 2), a program which promotes leadership and and equips politicians with precise trainings and strategies to realize the essence of ethical governance; to date one of the best organizations for up and coming public servants.


Paolo and his partner, Mika, also a provincial board member and a fellow of YLGG Batch 1, are the proud parents of two sons, Pablo Miquel (Q) and Francisco Miguel (Sevy).
