Apr 17, 2014

On Wednesday, the New Shoreham Democratic Town Committee voted unanimously to endorse Gina Raimondo for governor. The committee voted to back Gina as the leader we need to get Rhode Island back on track.

“We are confident that Gina will be an outstanding governor and we are thrilled to be endorsing her in the Democratic Primary,” said Chairman Sean McGarry. "Gina has the detailed plans we need to grow our economy and create jobs by better using the resources we already have in our state. As Block Island residents, we know how incredible our beaches and tourist attractions are, and we’re glad to see that Gina has a smart, well thought-out strategy to promote Rhode Island tourism.”

“Thank you to the New Shoreham Democrats for their endorsement; I appreciate all of their support,” said Gina. “Block Island is a great example of what we need to be spreading the word about with a statewide strategy to market our beautiful state. Let’s get Rhode Islanders back to work now by building on our strengths and growing our middle class.”
