In case you are wondering how much your incumbent Congressman is worth, you are lucky because we have the figures for you. However, please note that these figures may have changed because they are based on the Congressmen’s 2004 Statements of Assets and Liabilities (SAL) filed during the beginning of their current congressional term. Still, we have to make do with these figures in the absence of more recent SALs from our Representatives.
So who’s the richest Congressman from the Cordilleras? Apayao Rep. Elias Bulut Jr. with a net worth of P21.7 million. And the poorest? Assassinated Abra Congressman Luis Bersamin with a net worth of “only” P2.45 million.
