Cuin was a co-founder of Parent Power of New Britain, an organization working to improve the quality of life in the city’s growing Latino community. He worked for HRA’s Head Start Program and with a program at the Community Foundation of Greater New Britain.
Cuin, who holds a juris doctorate from the Inter American University of Puerto Rico, is a founder of the Latino Coalition and in 2010 was appointed to the Connecticut Latino and Puerto Rican Affairs Commission.
“Francisco has been an integral part of the Democratic Town Committee’s voter registration and get out the vote efforts,” said Democratic Chairman John McNamara. “We will miss his strong commitment to increasing the involvement of Latinos and other citizens in politics and government.”
New Britain Democrats extend best wishes and success to Francisco in his transition to Florida.

“We need a city government that reflects Democratic values. We need an administration that can take advantage of our many assets, the talents of our people, our diversity and our strategic location. We need city leadership that can work more effectively with state and federal officials to bring and leverage resources for economic development, downtown revitalization and healthy neighborhoods. We need a city government that is not indifferent to income inequality and the many challenges we face as an economically distressed city.”
