Commish. Antonio Colorado

Former Resident Commissioner for Puerto Rico’s At-Large District

Colorado was the resident commissioner from Puerto Rico and was a Democrat. He served from 1991 to 1992.

Because Puerto Rico is a territory of the United States, and not a state, its representative in the House of Representatives is a delegate, called the resident commissioner, with limited voting privileges — Colorado can currently vote in committee and in certain votes on the House floor, but not if their vote would be decisive. Delegates have a marginalized role in Congress and their constituents are not represented in Congress in the same manner as most citizens.
