PROVIDENCE – The Johnston Democratic Town Committee unanimously endorsed
Aquidneck Island businessman Guillaume De Ramel in his race to become Rhode Island’s
next Secretary of State. A motion to endorse was made by Johnston Mayor Joe Polisena
and seconded by Bernard Frezza, a senior aide to former Secretaries of State Jim
Langevin, Ed Inman, and Matt Brown.

“It’s important to come out early for the most competent candidate,” said
Mayor Polisena. “I move for this committee to endorse Guillaume De Ramel for
Secretary of State.”

“I’m pleased to announce that Guillaume De Ramel has the unanimous support of the
Johnston Democratic Town Committee,” said Chairman Richard Delfino following the
vote. “He is passionate about the functions of the office and I share the
committee’s opinion that he will do the best job for Rhode Islanders as our next
Secretary of State.”

“There is so much potential in our state and I know we can positively impact our
economic climate by cutting red-tape, increasing transparency, and creating a new way
of doing business here in Rhode Island,” said Guillaume. “I am proud that Chairman
Delfino and the Johnston Democratic Town Committee have joined my team. I look
forward to meeting with more Rhode Islanders, discussing the issues and building on
this momentum in the weeks and months ahead.”
The Johnston Democratic Town Committee’s endorsement joins North Providence Mayor
Charlie Lombardi and the Charlestown Democratic Town Committee to support Guillaume
in January. Last month, former Rhode Island Democratic Party Chairman Ed Pacheco –
himself a former candidate for Secretary of State – as well as eleven members of
the Providence City Council all have endorsed Guillaume’s candidacy.

Current Secretary of State, A. Ralph Mollis, is term-limited from seeking re-election
to the same office in 2014.
