Welcome to the site
I have declared my candidacy in the November 2016 election for the City Council seat in Ward 3, East Providence (RI).
When I ran in 2012 as a political novice backed only by citizens who trusted that I would offer them honesty, independence and integrity in office, I received a considerable number of votes. In 2014, again with no special interest or party backing and again with the support of the people, I came within 120 votes out of a total of nearly 2,600 cast, only to be defeated by the narrowest margin.
Since the beginning of this Council term, we’ve seen that the politicized culture at City Hall has changed little. There are good and decent people–our neighbors–serving on the Council, whose efforts appear to be on behalf of the people they represent. Others, however, appear to serve only their own interests, and that motivates me to try again to return integrity to the Ward 3 seat, to represent the people of Kent Heights, Kent Gardens, Silver Spring, Boyden Heights, the Riverside “Maze” and all the other beautiful areas of Ward 3 with honesty and fairness.
The November election is six months away, too early for campaigning, but not too early to start thinking. What I’m thinking is this…
