Legislative District of San Jose Del Monte City

The Legislative District of San Jose del Monte City is the current representation of the city of San Jose del Monte in the Philippine House of Representatives.

From 1907 to 1972, San Jose del Monte was represented in Congress as part of the second district of Bulacan. The province of Bulacan was represented in the Interim Batasang Pambansa as part of Region III from 1978 to 1984, and elected four representatives at-large to the Regular Batasang Pambansa in 1984

San Jose del Monte was placed in the fourth district of Bulacan after the reorganization of the province's legislative districts under the new Constitution which took effect on February 7, 1987. San Jose del Monte, which became a city in 2000, was separated from the fourth district of Bulacan on December 18, 2003 by virtue of Republic Act No. 9230 which amended the city charter (RA 8797), and elected its own representative starting in the 2004 elections. However the city's residents still vote as part of the province's 4th Sangguniang Panlalawigan district for the purpose of electing Provincial Board members.

    the San Marco Library,
    Whence turbulent Italy should draw
    Delight in Art whose end is peace,
    In logic and in natural law
    By sucking at the dugs of Greece.

    ...we were at last in Monte Cristo’s country, fairly into the country of the fabulous, where extravagance ceases to exist because everything is extravagant, and where the wildest dreams come true.
    Willa Cather (1876–1947)

    The Great Society is a place where every child can find knowledge to enrich his mind and to enlarge his talents.... It is a place where the city of man serves not only the needs of the body and the demands of commerce but the desire for beauty and the hunger for community.... It is a place where men are more concerned with the quality of their goals than the quantity of their goods.
    Lyndon Baines Johnson (1908–1973)
