More popularly known as Mayor Recom, Atty. Enrico Echiverri started his career in public service when he was appointed Director for the Videogram Regulatory Board. His gift in local administration was first honed and discovered when he became City Councilor and was awarded Most Outstanding City Councilor in 1992. He became the Secretary to the Mayor before serving as Congressman for the 1st district of the same city. In 2004, he was elected as City Mayor. Mayor Recom is currently on his 3rd term in office.
He was the only local chief executive who dared to dream big for Caloocan City. Armed with a vision and a battlecry for comprehensive, honest-to-goodness reform, Mayor Recom has efficiently jumpstarted Caloocan’s local government machinery through sheer ingenuity and political will, and successfully turned around a debt-ridden, graft-filled city towards becoming a tourist and investment destination, barely a year after assuming office. His brand of governance “with a heart and a conscience” has revitalized the city that used to wallow in neglect and ignominy.
As a former Congressman, he successfully raised the level of development in his district through various infrastructures with minimal funding. Thus, he held the distinction of being the first solon in the political history of Caloocan City to be re-elected to a second term of office. He was appointed Deputy Majority Leader and received the Hall of Fame Award as Most Outstanding Congressman from various civic groups, along with many other commendations as an excellent legislator and public servant.
A natural born achiever, Mayor Recom completed his primary and secondary diplomas with honors at the Morning Breeze Elementary School (1967) and Araneta University Foundation High School (1971) respectively. He obtained his Baccalaureate Degree in Economics at San Beda College (with honors) in 1976. He then pursued his post graduate studies at the Ateneo De Manila earning his Bachelor of Laws (1st Honors Card) in 1981.
He had begun his career in law as Legal Manager, In-House Counsel and Senior Associate of various firms, and was a Law Professor in four major universities. His active involvement in public service and civic duty was manifested by his leadership in various organizations, among which is the League of Cities in the Philippines, where he is Vice President for the NCR Chapter, and the Integrated Bar of the Philippines, Caloocan-Malabon Chapter, where he was President for two years. He is also a member of the Philippine Trial Lawyers Association, the Philippine Association of Voluntary Arbitrators, the Philippine Councilors League, among a host of other organizations. He is currently the National Chairman of the League of Cities of the Philippines.
