Rick Torres, US House of Representatives - District #4.
Rick Torres is a life-long Bridgeport resident, a successful small-business owner, and a true leader and steward of public good in his neighborhood, community, and native city.
He prides himself in being a student of the Constitution, and is running to be the kind of a citizen legislator envisioned by our Founders.
Rick was born in Bridgeport in 1959. His father, Juan, a Cuban immigrant and a political activist whose radio program had been shut down by the Batista regime, welcomed the Cuban Revolution. In 1961, Juan took his family back to Cuba to help Castro lead his native land out of tyranny—or so he thought. It took Juan only a couple of months to become disillusioned with the communist dictator, and another 5 years to secure permission to leave Cuba again. In 1967, Rick and his brother were brought back to Bridgeport—with not much more than the clothes on their backs. Today a successful self-made businessman and one of the most respected Republicans in Bridgeport, Rick never forgets his humble beginnings.
Rick attended Bullard Havens Technical high school where he became a master carpenter. He also he proved to be a star athlete, becoming Captain of the Basketball Team, selected All-Conference in football—and chosen King of the Prom!—and earning two athletic college scholarships: one in basketball and one in football. With his eyes set on becoming a doctor, but lacking any academic foundation, Rick enrolled himself for a year into a prestigious prep school—striking a deal with the headmaster to work, in lieu of paying the tuition, as a school carpenter full time over the summer and two hours each day during the school year.
Winning a full academic scholarship, Rick went on to study biology in Washington University. It was there that he met his future wife—now of 27 years—Michele. In 1983, Rick graduated with honors and returned to Bridgeport. He enrolled in the Ph.D. program in Microbiology and Biochemistry at the UConn Health Center. Two years later—he and Michele now having two sons—Rick had to quit graduate school to support his family.
