People who know of my support for the arts and social programs are sometimes surprised to find that I’m running as a Republican.
Most Rhode Islanders would be Republican if they actually understood what Republicans stood for. They value self-reliance, good education, hard work, and fair play. They respect those who serve us – not only our police, firefighters, and military, but also school teachers, road construction crews, and anyone whose work makes Rhode Island a great place to live. They demand fairness in our courts and in our dealings with one another. They want to protect and help those of us who are in need, and elevate everyone to reach their full potential and be the best they can be.
These are Rhode Island values, these are Republican values, and these are my values.
