Mayor Vicky Lim of Gasan as LMP National Treasurer
During the 1st National Directorate Meeting and Election of New Set of Officers for the Year 2010-2013 held in October 7-8, 2010 at Crown Plaza Hotel, Ortigas, Pasig City, her candidacy as national treasurer of the League of Municipaities of the Pilippines was uncontested.
The candidate, Mayor Vicky Lao Lim of Gasan, winning unopposed in the LMP, will therefore serve a three-year term as national treasurer of the League.
The League of Municipalities of the Philippines (LMP) is composed of 1,502 member municipalities that are at the frontline of the silent battle against poverty. The organization is vital in rallying the municipalities towards governance reforms and delivery of services to the people.

Lim also holds the position as President of the LMP-Marinduque Chapter since the election for a new president in July 2010.
Destined to serve the public, her political career strives to continue. It is so because Mayor Lim experienced how good it was to start from the bottom to the top. When she was already posted at the high position, she knew how to handle people and nurture their career in important areas.
Lim, who broke the local town record as the first mayor to have been re-elected in Gasan has always been known as one who leads her life in accordance with her philosophy that poverty does not prevent anyone from reaching one's dream even in the island of Marinduque.
