RI Senate Candidate Forum: Wednesday, September 5th
 Let's face it. Understanding the differences between the roles and responsibilities of your City Council person, State Representative, and State Senator can be confusing. Furthermore, the ward map for City Council is different from the district map for State Representative and Senate positions. 

To help you be informed, we are hosting a RI Senate Candidate Forum on Wednesday, September 5th, 6:30 PM at The Pavilion at Grace Church. Please enter the Pavilion using the rear entrance off of the Chapel Street lot. Click here to see a map.

This special meeting replaces our typical monthly meeting on the 2nd Tuesday of the month and will focus on our RI Senate candidates. Each person running for a State Senate seat that touches the downtown area (District 5 and 6) has been invited.
(The candidates who filed for the Democratic State Senate primaries were state Sen. Paul Jabour, Nicholas Autiello and Sam Bell in District 5 and state Sen. Harold Metts, Carlos Cedeño and Jonathan A. Hernández in District 6.)

7:30 p.m.
