Increasing Latino Support for Gubernatorial Candidate Gina Raimondo
At least five elected Latino officials are supporting Gina Raimondo in her gubernatorial campaign. Among these officials are Providence City Council members Sabina Matos, Luis Aponte, and Davian Sanchez and state Representatives Grace Diaz and Anastasia Williams. The Latino leaders joined together with Gina Raimondo on Tuesday to launch Latinos con Gina at a kickoff party.
Raimondo’s only Democratic primary opponent so far is Providence Mayor Angel Taveras, the first Latino mayor of the city.
