Al Cortes

State Representative District 20 

I am a life long Nutmegger who grew up in Hartford and moved to West Hartford in 1998 with my wife Jessica. We have 2 boys, Adrian who is 20 and Gabriel who is 11 both attend schools in West Hartford. 

I served as a cannon crew member in the CT Army National Guard for 6 years. In 1999 I started my career with CT Department of Corrections as a Correction Officer. During my career as a Correction Officer I was assigned to MacDougall Walker Correction Institution, Central Transportation Unit and Manson Youth Institution. I was also a recipient of the Public Service Award for my involvement in the community as a volunteer for various organizations.

I had the pleasure of serving as the Walk Chair for the greater Hartford chapter of Autism Speaks for 2 years. As a committee we were responsible for putting together a walk for over 7,500 participants and supporting them throughout the year so they can meet there fundraising goals. 

I am currently volunteer for the Hartford Marathon Foundation where I have been the Athlete Gear Check Coordinator since 2009. I also serve on the Church Council for West Hartford United Methodist Church.
