“I am pleased Joe Trillo has asked me to join his executive team, as he amps up his campaign to be Rhode Island’s next governor. I have known Joe for a long time, consider him a friend and enjoy working with him because of his inventive and creative nature. Joe’s enthusiasm to refine how state government works for taxpayers is a message I want to help communicate to voters,” said Smith.

“I am delighted Raina has agreed to join my campaign for governor. As someone I have worked with in the past, I know her work ethic, creativity, and commitment to what she sets her mind to, is second to none. With her extensive background as a Director of Communications with political offices, as well as having worked in television and radio, I know she is the perfect person to effectively communicate my message to voters and the media,” said Trillo.
