Lt. Governor Elizabeth Roberts has endorsed Seth Magaziner for Rhode Island General Treasurer. 

“Seth Magaziner is the clear choice for Rhode Islanders who care about good jobs, small businesses and getting Rhode Island’s economy growing,” said Governor Roberts. “Seth will bring a steady hand to the state’s finances and use the Treasurer’s office to invest in programs and infrastructure that will help Rhode Island succeed.

“I ask Rhode Islanders to join me in electing Seth Magaziner as our next General Treasurer because we need leaders who will keep our state moving forward," continued Roberts.

“Lieutenant Governor Roberts has been a tireless advocate for the people of Rhode Island and I am truly honored to have earned her support,” said Magaziner. “I am running for Treasurer because we must continue to focus on building a stronger economy and creating jobs right here in Rhode Island. We cannot afford to turn back the clock on the progress that has been made, but must instead look for new and innovative ways to make the Treasurer’s office a platform for economic growth.”
