Foster democrats endorse Gina Raimondo for Governor

Foster — Yesterday, the Foster Democratic Town Committee voted overwhelmingly to

endorse Gina Raimondo in the Democratic primary for governor. Foster is the second

town committee to endorse Gina.

«We are proud to be endorsing Gina; now more than ever, Rhode Island needs a leader

with a sense of urgency to address our most pressing problems,» said Foster

Democratic Chairman John Bevilacqua. «With a lagging economy and infrastructure in

disrepair, it’s critically important that we elect a governor who is ready to set a

course to move this state forward and we will be working very hard to make sure she

is elected.»

«I’m honored to have earned the support of the Foster Democrats,» said Gina. «Our

state is facing some huge challenges; we have the highest unemployment in the

country and crumbling infrastructure. But we also have incredible resources:

top-notch research institutions, gorgeous coastlines, a long history of

manufacturing expertise and, most importantly, the strength and resiliency of Rhode

Islanders. There’s no reason why our economy should continue to struggle and my

first priority will be getting people back to work. Thanks to the Foster Democrats

for their support and I look forward to working with them.»

Gina has already been endorsed by the Plumbers and Pipefitters Local 51, the

Ironworkers Local 37, EMILY’s List, Lt. Gov Elizabeth Roberts, Senator Donna

Nesselbush, Representative Grace Diaz, Representative Anastasia Williams, Providence

Councilman Luis Aponte, Providence Councilman Davian Sanchez, Providence

Councilwoman Sabina Matos, Smithfield Councilwoman Suzy Alba and the Scituate

Democratic Town Committee.
