I am happy to announce my candidacy for the R.I. State Senate this year. In the weeks after St. Patrick’s Day, stemming the spread of the coronavirus took up a great deal of my attention as the president of the Narragansett Town Council. Protecting the health and safety of our residents is paramount and I worked closely with our town manager, town clerk and other town staff to maintain town operations in this new environment. As weeks turned to months, I also realized that it was important to return to normal and not let the virus change our way of life.
