Wakefield, RI – This past weekend, Teresa Tanzi, Democratic candidate for State Representative for District 34 (Narragansett, Wakefield and Peace Dale), kicked off the next phase of her campaign by introducing herself to residents in her district. In conversations on doorsteps, Tanzi learned about neighbors' concerns both local and statewide.
The response from the community was overwhelmingly positive. Residents expressed excitement at the prospect of having new political representation. Underlying many of the discussions with Tanzi was a strong desire for change. In response to one neighbor who said he was cleaning his house when Tanzi stopped by, Tanzi stated, “That’s exactly what I am interested in doing. I’m running for the chance to clean up the House and clean up the messes our General Assembly have created for us on so many issues.”
