Welcome to the site
After considerable thought, I have declared my candidacy for the Ward 3 seat on the City Council for the 2014 election. My promise to the people of East Providence – and my only promise – is that, if elected, all my actions will be "Pro Bono Publico," the motto on our city seal – for the public good, not for personal gain.
I ran for the Ward 3 seat on the Council in the 2012 election because, while our elected officials seemed to share my love for this city, their efforts hadn't brought the results that we needed. Forty-three percent of the voters agreed with me; unfortunately, the others didn't. My campaign was funded totally through generous contributions from my family and friends and supporters I met along the campaign trail. I did not receive, nor did I seek, endorsements or funds from any political party or special interest group. I will conduct my 2014 campaign in the same way, and I hope I can earn your support.
Like so many East Providence residents, businesspeople and taxpayers, I've been alarmed at the steady decline of our proud city. Nearly 50 years ago, East Providence was named an "All-America City" by the National Civic League. The award came just a few years after the city incorporated in 1958. This was a proud time for us – a time of prosperity and general well being – and I want East Providence to regain what it has lost since then. Although we have seen some improvements since 2012, we can do better than this. We need a majority of people on the Council who honor the city motto: "Pro Bono Publico" – "For the Public Good."

I would sincerely appreciate your support.
