Carmencita Ongsiako Reyes (born November 9, 1931) is a Filipino politician and jurist. She served as an Assemblywoman[4] from 1985 to 1986, Congresswoman of Marinduque from 1978 to 1998[5] and 2007[6] to 2010, as well as governor from 1998 to 2007 and 2010 to present.[2]

Batasang Pambansa Assemblywoman[edit]

Reyes won a seat in the Batasang Pambansa in 1984 under the ruling Kilusang Bagong Lipunan Party of President Ferdinand Marcos. She aligned herself with then-Marinduque Governor Aristeo Lecaroz, also of the KBL Party. Reyes was a close ally of the Marcos regime. Her husband, Edmundo M. Reyes, was appointed by President Marcos as the Commissioner on Immigration. Reyes served as an Assemblywoman until the 1986 EDSA Revolution drove Marcos out of power.

Governorship[edit]

From 1998 to 2007 she issued projects that boost education, tourism and good governance.
