History

Barangay Dasmariñas began as part of Barangay Forbes Park. In 1971, a group of residents spearheaded the breakaway from Barangay Forbes Park because they felt the needs of Dasmariñas were not being given priority despite the fact it had bigger population than North and South Forbes Park put together. The members of this group of leaders were Rene Tanseco, Col. Antonio Gana, Cesar J. Bautista, Atty. Eddie Hernandez, Arch. Pablo D. Panlilio, Isabel Wilson the late Atty. Alfredo Zamora and Luis Mana.

 

In 1971, the first Barrio Captain of Dasmariñas was Atty. Alfredo Zamora. Unfortunately due to health reason, Atty. Zamora’s service was cut short. Thus, Mr. Cesar J. Bautista being the first councilman was appointed as Barrio Captain of Dasmariñas. He served for a period of 17 years from 1971 to 1989.

 

Barangay Dasmariñas founded in 1971 serves as the local government agency of Dasmariñas Village. It is composed of the Punong Barangay (Barangay Captain), 7 Kagawads (Councilors), and the Sangguniang Kabataan (Youth Sector Representatives). Its role is to enact and enforce ordinances to promote the general welfare of residents.
