Board Member Perlita Avena Delos Santos, one of the four ladies who now sit in the 9th Sangguniang Panlalawigan, hails from Barangay Sto.Cristo, City of San Jose Del Monte. She first saw the light of day on March 2, 1949 in the City of San Jose Del Monte.
Being one of the five new members of the present august body, Board Member Lita is not actually a neophyte lawmaker, but a returning legislator. She had her first taste of public service as early as 1998 when she was first elected councilor of the then Municipality of San Jose Del Monte. Because of her good works as a lady legislator, her townmates entrusted her their votes to elect her as vice-mayor in the 2001 election. As vice-mayor and presiding officer of the Sangguniang Panlungsod, she was recognized and accorded a citation by the Gawad Galing Sanggunian Awards Committee, to wit, “Citation of Merit for Outstanding Performance as Presiding Officer” in 2003.
The sister of former Board Member Enrique “Ike” Delos Santos and aunt of former Board Member and now SJDM City Councilor Enrique “Jonjon” Delos Santos, Jr., Board Member Perlita currently chairs the Committee on Environmental Protection and Climate Change, Committee on Public Works and Infrastructure and Committee on Games and Amusements. She is also a member of the Provincial Disaster Management Council.
