Washington, DC – Congressman José E. Serrano released the following statement today on the passing of former Puerto Rico Governor Rafael Hernández Colón:

“Today, Puerto Rico mourns the passing of one of its most important figures in the last 50 years – former Governor Rafael Hernández Colón. Hernández Colón was a statesman, the youngest governor in Puerto Rico’s history, and a man who dedicated his life to public service. I deeply respected him as a man and his leadership throughout the years. My thoughts and prayers are with his family - his wife, sons, and grandsons- and loved ones.”
