Impacto Hispano Newpaper Panel Endorses Cianci for Mayor

The Impacto Hispano Newspaper Panel has endorsed Independent Candidate Vincent A. Cianci, Jr. for Mayor of Providence.

Bob Cooper, Impacto Hispano co-Publisher and reporter for Impacto Hispano Newspaper/SuperMax News Network said, “We appreciate the time Buddy Cianci devoted to fielding questions on the future of Providence from a racially and ethnically diverse editorial group of local media and community members who comprised our panel.  While we hoped to hear from all three Providence mayoral candidates, Buddy Cianci was the only one who participated.  Scheduling Dan Harrop was impossible.  Jorge Elorza was scheduled twice, and cancelled twice.  We thank Buddy Cianci for responding, in person and despite his busy schedule, to the questions of special concern to members of Providence’s diverse communities.”

AFL-CIO President Nee and Rhode Island business Duffy Urge Voters to Support Magaziner

AFL-CIO President George Nee and Rhode Island business leader Jon Duffy have co-authored a letter asking Rhode Islanders to support Democratic candidate Seth Magaziner for General Treasurer.

The contents of the letter is below:

The head of the Rhode Island AFL-CIO and a Rhode Island business leader don’t always see eye-to-eye, but today we are united by a common desire to see Rhode Island succeed. We ask you join us in electing Seth Magaziner as our next General Treasurer.

Rhode Island is facing some tremendous challenges and it’s time for smart, honest, fresh leadership to get Rhode Island working again.

Seth understands these challenges and knows what it takes to get our economy growing and creating jobs. His Blueprint addresses our crumbling infrastructure and will invest more locally, so that we create jobs and business opportunities right here in Rhode Island, not other states.

Seth is a capable investment professional. He will bring a steady hand to our state’s finances and ensure that we never face another pension crisis, because Rhode Islanders deserve certainty and stability.

We are joined by a wide and diverse group of business leaders, labor unions, advocacy groups and proven leaders who are supporting Seth because they know he will be an exceptional Treasurer and advocate for the people of Rhode Island, and so do we.

We ask that you will, please, join us and countless other Rhode Islanders by casting your vote for Seth Magaziner for General Treasurer on Tuesday, November 4th. 

Jon Duffy, President, Duffy & Shanley
George Nee, President, Rhode Island AFL-CIO
