What is a Constable? In Connecticut, a Constable has the same duties, within the boundaries of a town, as a State Marshal: serving legal papers to the people named in a lawsuit. (This role was also fulfilled by County Sheriffs until that office was abolished in 2000.)

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 New Canaan in 1991. Hector set up a number of small businesses and has volunteered in the New Canaan High School and the Saxe Middle School libraries. He is a Justice of the Peace.


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.


Hector was elected Constable in 2005, 2007, and 2009. He hopes you will elect him again to serve the people of New Canaan.
