Hector Lopez for Constable, New Canaan 2009|
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 Viet Nam and
during the present war in Iraq. 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 and to close Indian Point nuclear plant, and was an active member of the
Duffee for Congress 2008 committee.
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 and 2007. He hopes you will re-elect him to serve another
term representing the people of New Canaan.
