  • The Town of Weston has more independent/third-party voters than Republicans or Democrats. (Weston enrollment figures as of October 29, 2013)
  • But the town has only a Democratic Registrar and a Republican Registrar.
  • Elect Hector Lopez as the third registrar to protect voting rights for everyone, including independents and third-party voters.
  • Hector would like to see voting rights extended to prison inmates, as in his native Puerto Rico:

The United States incarcerates more people per capita than any other country in the world. Eighteen European democracies permit incarcerated prisoners to vote, as do Canada and Puerto Rico. In the U.S., only the states of Maine and Vermont do so. No democracy other than the United States bars parolees from voting.


Martin Luther King once wrote, "No nation can long continue to flourish or to find its way to a better society while it allows any one of its citizens to be denied the right to participate in the most fundamental of all privileges of democracy -- the right to vote."

--"Felons and the Right to Vote" (2003)



Hector was born in Puerto Rico (a Latin American nation) in 1942 and arrived in the U.S. in 1956. He lived 35 years in New York City before moving to Fairfield County in 1991. Hector set up a number of small businesses and has volunteered in the public schools. He is a Justice of the Peace, and he served several years as a Town Constable in New Canaan.


A U.S. Army veteran, Hector has participated in the antiwar movement during Vietnam and during the present wars in Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, and Syria. He believes that diplomacy with justice and respect for the sovereignty of nations, including his home country of Puerto Rico, is the course to be followed by our government. He has participated in activities to promote better benefits for veterans and better environmental policies. He has worked on several local initiatives to protect open space, to close Indian Point nuclear plant, and to stop global warming.


In addition to politics, Hector loves Puerto Rican danzas, Italian music, Hungarian rhapsodies, and waltzes, both European and Puerto Rican style.
