*Statement by Cranston City Council City-Wide candidate Lammis J. Vargas*
Cranston, RI – «Only days after announcing my candidacy for City Council
and being endorsed by the Cranston City Democratic Committee, I became ill,
had to be hospitalized and was diagnosed with APL Leukemia. I have always
fought for what I believe in and will not let this turn of events determine
my life. After speaking with my family and my physicians, I am confident
that this type of cancer is beatable and will not impact my ability to
campaign, meet the residents and serve our city. I look forward to earning
the support of the people of Cranston and representing them on the City
Council.”

Lammis J. Vargas, a resident of Betsy Williams Drive, is a Democratic
Candidate for City Council City-Wide in Cranston, a proud mother of two,
and the wife of a Warwick Police Officer.
