Dwayne Keys is running for State Rep in District 9.

Community activist and President of the South Providence Neighborhood Association Dwayne Keys has announced his official campaign kick-off to run for State Representative for District 9 -- currently held by Rep. Anastasia Williams.

Keys made the following announcement on Tuesday:

"I’m sending you all this message as confirmation of a pre-announcement: I’m running for State Representative – District 9 in the General Assembly. With all of my experience & involvement in the community, seeking this public office is a natural progression that would allow me to serve all Rhode Islanders in a much greater capacity, providing Unity in the Community!

I invite you all to join me for my Campaign Kick-Off Fundraiser & Formal Announcement on Tuesday, February 27th, from 5:30pm until 7:30pm, at Wes Rib’s (located at 38 Dike Street in Providence). In the coming weeks you’ll all have the opportunity to learn more my campaign, including my focus on housing, transportation, redistricting, and income inequity, just to name a few. I also welcome you to support my campaign, either by a donation and/or volunteering."

According to Keys' filings, he is running as a Democrat.
