Rep. Doreen Costa endorses Ken Block for Governor

Rhode Island State Representative Doreen M. Costa has endorsed Ken Block.

“Ken Block is the only gubernatorial candidate that has put together a specific plan to fix Rhode Island,” said Costa. “Clearly he understands that in order to rebuild our economy and create new jobs we need fundamental changes that will reduce taxes and eliminate wasteful spending. I particularly like the fact that Ken’s plan is specific enough to actually identify where the wasteful spending is occurring and what taxes need reducing.”

Doreen M. Costa represents District 31, which includes Exeter and North Kingstown, since being elected in November of 2010.

“Ken also has a plan to reform state government,” said Costa.“He wants to re-empower the Ethics Commission, establish a line-item veto, abolish the master lever, and create greater transparency in the legislative process. These reforms are sorely needed in our state. Ken has shown time and time again that he can take on the big issues and the special interests. This is exactly what we need from Rhode Island’s next Governor.”

Costa is a member of the Rhode Island Republican Assembly, the RIGOP State Central Committee, and the North Kingstown Republican Town Committee.
