Congressman Luis Campos might look like an ordinary public servant galavanting the villages of Makati – but mind you, he came from the historical Nakpil clan. He partly owns the Elite Models Manila with its headquarters at top floor of A.Venue Makati. Campos’s family once owned Juan Luna’s “Parisian Life.” He was also a partner in the Filipino restaurant Andres, and opened the Botong’s Resto-Bar in Makati.
Mayor Abby Binay and Campos are both products of Ateneo Law School. Both are avid art collectors and lived originally at the posh Dasmariñas Village. Despite all these, his love for public service made him at one with the Binays’ humble style and ways. He’s a common sight at his wife’s medical clinics and job fairs. It was only at the “Lingkod Bayan Caravan” where his name was highlighted when Abby had to run for mayor of Makati replacing her brother, Junjun Binay. Then, he has no choice but to run to replace his wife as representative of Makati District 2.
He is approachable and will go out of his way to visit you when circumstances call for it. During the election, he assigned his staff Ching at 8825098 and Jony at 09189335219 to take care of people asking for help on legal concerns who were not only helpful but also polite and prompt. Campos is the first Binay in-law to serve in public office.
