A two-term Councilor in 1998-2004, heading the committee on Budget, Finance and Appropriation, then Councilor Leyble is determined to sustain effective supervision of the City Council. He has been a major factor in the promotion of good governance in the City, then in 2004-2007 he ran as Vice-Mayor and won convincingly. At the 2007 reelection he established the trust and the confidence of his constituents as a public servant after he was reelected as Vice-Mayor on a majority vote of confidence. It was a historical mark in the political arena of Antipolo when he was proclaimed with the highest vote ever gotten by a candidate in any position and the only Vice-Mayor that was reelected.
As a former member of the Interim Office of the Vice-Mayor’s League of the Philippines and at the same time the National Vice-President for Luzon and National Legal Adviser for Luzon, the task at hand was gargantuan. But with the support of his better- half Atty. Carmencita “Menchie” A. Leyble, his efficient and competent office staff, colleagues and constituents of 16 barangays, he was able to get things done. The untimely death of the late Mayor Victor R. Sumulong has compelled the Honorable Mayor to take over the rein of leadership of the City. He took his oath of office last January 8, 2009 which was administered by Department of Interior and Local Government Secretary Ronaldo V. Puno in Quezon City in the presence of all the Antipolo City Officials, Punong Barangays, friends and his lifetime partner and friend, his wife, Atty. Menchie Leyble.
