Bongat served as City Councilor for three consecutive terms from 2001 to 2010.

In 2010 he was elected as Naga City Mayor succeeding the late Interior Secretary Jesse Robredo. He was re-elected in 2013 and 2016.

After serving out his three terms as mayor, Bongat did not run in any public office in the 2019 elections.
