Career highlights and awards

Robert Vincent "Dodot" Bautista Jaworski Jr. (born October 14, 1971) is a Filipino politician and former basketball player.[1] He served as a member of House of Representatives representing the Lone District of Pasig from 2004 to 2007.

Basketball career

Jaworski was drafted by PBA team Ginebra San Miguel in 1995 to join his father, then playing coach Robert Jaworski Sr. Together, they won one championship together in 1997 PBA Commissioner's Cup playing as the Gordon's Gin Boars.

He played for the Ginebra San Miguel from 1995 to 1998 being only the father-and-son tandem of Philippine basketball. He retired in 1999 at the age of 28, together with his father.

Political career

Jaworski began his political career as a councilor in the Municipality of San Juan in 1995, at the age of 23. In 1998, he served as Chief of Staff at the office of his father, Senator Jaworski, for six years.

In 2004, he was elected as congressman of the lone district of Pasig, defeating then-incumbent congressman Noel "Toti" Cariño, who would later become his party mate in 2006. Upon finishing his first congressional term in 2007, he unsuccessfully ran for Mayor of Pasig, having been defeated by the incumbent Mayor's son, Robert Eusebio. He ran under the political party called Partido Pasigueño. The early part of the election vote tally showed Jaworski leading, but was overtaken by Eusebio. Jaworski later promised to file a protest against Eusebio.[2]

On September 23, 2021, Jaworski announced that he will be running for vice mayor of Pasig in 2022 as the running mate of Mayor Vico Sotto under Aksyon Demokratiko.[3]
