Virginia Parejo

Ward 1 Councilwoman

My life is an American dream. Legally immigrating from Spain as a small child to escape the Franco regime, my parents brought me to America to give me a better life. I have worked hard to become 
an American citizen and know that living in America is better than anywhere else in the world.  
I am raising my two high school aged daughters in Delran Township and love this town. 

For the last 12 years, I have lived with my family in Ward 1 and transitioned from Stay at Home mom to working Mom when my home situation required. Becoming a substitute teacher in Delran schools since 2013, has given me the opportunity to meet so many wonderful families, through their children. 

I learned that everyone, children, parents and seniors, want to give their families a safe place to live and grow in a community that supports them.
