I love Rhode Island and I want to see it restored to the prominence it once enjoyed. I believe that I have the necessary energy and attitude to make a difference on Smith Hill. I have the willingness to listen to new ideas and cooperate with members of both parties. I have the thick skin necessary to survive the inevitable criticisms that come with difficult decisions. I have a technical background which makes me detail oriented. I believe that this will help me when analyzing the pros and cons of new legislation. And finally, I have no allegiances to party bosses, or special interest groups. I have my own voice, and I will not be a follower.
