He was working in Brión and moved to Cesures. When his twelve-year-old died, he was plunged into sadness and gave up teaching. Shortly after, he was persuaded to be mayor in Pontecesures and he filled the office from 12th May 1928 to 26th February 1930. Then he was nominated as secretary of the Teaching Board of Examiners in Pontevedra. He joined the socialist party and participated in the propaganda of the Popular Front in his village. As a result, he was taken to prison again when the Falangist Movement started. One of his old pupils managed to take him out from prison and travelled to Buenos Aires.
