Biography
Back to top
Hilda E. Santiago is serving her first term in the Connecticut General Assembly proudly representing Meriden's 84th District. She currently serves on the legislature's Finance, Revenue and Bonding, Human Services and Insurance and Real State committees. She successfully claimed her seat in November, after Christopher Donovan retired from serving in the state legislature. Born in Naranjito, Puerto Rico and raised in New York City, Hilda's family moved to Meriden, Connecticut during her senior year of high school, where she attended and graduated Orville H. Platt High School. She obtained a Bachelor of Science in Secondary Education from Southern Connecticut State University, majoring in History and Latin American Studies. Hilda has been a strong advocate of civil and human rights as well as an avid supporter of Latino equality throughout her years in college and as a community activist in Meriden. Having been involved in local politics since 1990, Hilda was appointed to serve on the City Council in 1996 for one year and later became the first Puerto Rican female to win an open seat in Meriden's City Council in 2005. She has also served voluntarily on various local boards including the United Way, YWCA (WFC), Child Guidance Clinic, Catholic Charities, Kiwanis and Casa Boricua of Meriden. Hilda is the proud mother of two children, who are the source of her inspiration and motivation.
