- Restoring Funding to URI so that education is affordable and research can be performed to keep us competitive.
-And for our hospital, it is about making sure that licensing fees and taxes are fairly paid by the state’s larger hospitals and not disproportionately placed on smaller hospitals like ours.
The physical health of our residents is important too. Expanding our bike path, hiking trails and Wakefield’s walkable downtown. These investments improve the quality of life and lead to healthier individuals spending fewer dollars on healthcare and more dollars in our local stores. The work that I do is ALL about the health of our community- focusing on our small businesses, our natural resources, and indeed our physical health. That is where I will keep my focus, if re-elected.
This was Representative Tanzi's one minute opening statement at the League of Women Voters debate.
