PAWTUCKET – U.S. Congressman David N. Cicilline today released a 2015 Year-End Report that highlights some of the work his office completed this year in four key areas: getting Rhode Islanders back to work, promoting efficiency in government, delivering federal resources to Rhode Island, and leading on critical policy issues.
“As 2015 draws to a close, I am extraordinarily grateful for the opportunity you have given me to represent you in the Congress of the United States,” wrote Cicilline. “The progress we have made would never have been possible if it weren’t for the active support and engagement I have received from folks all across Rhode Island’s First District. I want to sincerely thank you for the work that you do. It is an honor to serve on your behalf.”
