EPDCC Announces Endorsement for 2018 Election

The East Providence Democratic City Committee met under the direction of Chairman John Faria with a large member turnout on Monday, April 23, 2018 at 6:30pm at the Riviera Inn Restaurant located at 580 North Broadway, East Providence, RI 02914 for the sole purpose of our April Business Meeting and Candidate Night.
At this meeting we deferred from our regular meeting format and gave each Democratic Candidate running for State & Local office an opportunity to give a presentation and Q&A’s during a 15 minute time slot. All candidates were well received and found the committee interested with strong questions for each office presented. 

The East Providence Democratic City Committee voted for endorsements on that evening. Together we look forward to having a very productive election year with strong quality Democratic candidates that each has great visions on how to move our state and city in the correct direction.

It is our pleasure to announce the following endorsed slate by the EPDCC.

Candidate for Lt. Governor – Representative Aaron Regunberg
Candidate for Secretary of State – Nellie Gorbea
Candidate for State Treasurer – Seth Magaziner
Candidate for Attorney General - Peter Neronha
Candidate for Congress – David Cicilline
Candidate for Senate – Sheldon Whitehouse
Candidate for At-Large City Council - Robert Rodericks
Candidate for At –Large School Committee – Joel Monteiro
Candidate for Mayor – Roberto DaSilva

Due to a previous engagement Governor Gina Raimondo was unable to attend our April Meeting she will be attending our May meeting to seek our endorsement and speak to our committee members and allow for questions to be answered.

We thank everyone for taking time to speak with our committee and we wish everyone a very productive campaign. The right to vote is a privilege and our constitutional right that we should all exercise during Primary and General Elections.
