Here’s four more hometown heroes! And none of them are your typical politician — and that is part of why we like them! If we want to see progressive change that lifts up the priorities of working families in Rhode Island, then we’ll need to elect folks from our communities, champions like these four women.
We’re proud to announce our latest round of endorsements. And once you hear about these candidates, we’re sure you’ll be just as excited as we are to see them elected! Meet your new hometown heroes:
Moira Walsh (HD 3) works as a server and has lead the fight to increase the tipped minimum wage in Rhode Island. She will be a tenacious advocate for low-income communities and for the basic worker standards that all Rhode Islanders deserve.
Marcia Ranglin-Vassell (HD 5) is a Providence public school teacher who has organized against high stakes testing and advocated to make it easier for formerly incarcerated individuals to find work.
Lisa Scorpio (HD 13) has been an active leader in the effort to increase the diversity of the Providence Police Department’s leadership and push for community oversight.
Rep. Elieen Naughton (HD 27) has focused her tenure in the State House on public health, especially for the most vulnerable individuals. She has won expanded screening, treatment and coverage for a variety of illnesses. She is also a leader in the effort to reduce lead in the local drinking water supply.
These candidates aren’t here for “politics-as-usual” and we’re guessing you aren’t either. That’s why it’s so crucially important to help get every one of them elected.
