Biography[edit]

Political career[edit]

Becerra was a member of the Pichilemu City Council as regidor for three, three-year-long terms, between 1897 and 1906. In 1906, he was elected segundo alcalde of Pichilemu for the 1906–09 term, and was re-elected for the 1912–1915 term. However, following Francisco Javier Asalgado's resignation as mayor in September 1912, he became the fifth primer alcalde (mayor) of Pichilemu, an office which he held for the rest of the term, until 1915. He was succeeded by Gustavo Silva Pizarro for the 1915–18 term.[1][2]

In April 1913, he sent a note to the Ministry of Railways urging the government to fasten the construction of the Alcones-Pichilemu railway.[3]
