In her first two years as a State Representative for District 34, Representative Teresa Tanzi has spent a great deal of her time focusing on issues impacting her communities. As a few examples:
Bike Path - Working with area stakeholder groups, she brokered a compromise to be presented to the Narragansett Town Council after an impasse had led to more delays to the approval for Phase 4 of the WIlliam C. O'Neill Bike Path. "I am very committed to this project which led me to the discovery that the town and DOT each felt the other was responsible for taking the next step. Now the process will no longer be held up," she stated.

Helping Schools - Tanzi has obtained several grants for community schools to purchase recreational equipment for students. She is a member of the PTO at Wakefield Elementary School, where her daughter attends, and she works with the administration there to improve the conditions for students wishing to bike and walk to school.
Assting Jonnycake Center - Tanzi personally delivers hundreds of pounds of produce from local farm stands to the Jonnycake Center to ensure those who are facing difficult times have access to fresh, local, healthy food.
