Commish. Jenniffer González-Colón

Resident Commissioner from Puerto Rico’s At-Large District, Republican

González-Colón, a Republican, is the resident commissioner from Puerto Rico and has served since Jan 3, 2017 (next election in 2018).

Because Puerto Rico is a territory of the United States, and not a state, it has no senators or representatives in Congress. Instead it sends a delegate to the House of Representatives, called the resident commissioner, with essentially no voting privileges. Delegates have a marginal role in Congress and their constituents are not represented in Congress in the same manner as most citizens.
