Freshman State Representative Christopher Millea joined GoLocal News Editor Kate Nagle on GoLocal LIVE when the General Assembly convened for 2019, and spoke to what his priorities are for the year -- and what he heard from constituents on the campaign trail and now taking office.

Millea, a private practice attorney, represents District 16 in Cranston. 

"I pre-filed a bill mandating - or at least requesting -- class sizes be reduced to twenty kids in [grades] K through 2," said Millea. "I think we should at least have a discussion on that. I think at that age kids need to be able to deal with their teachers, and teachers need to be able to deal with their children -- and having too many kids in the classroom is not going to do it."

"The biggest thing I've heard talking to my constituents really is the schooling issue," said Millea.
