One of the many things I admire about Senator Paiva Weed was her commitment to the transformation of the City’s North End, now known as the Knowledge District.  I share that commitment, which for her as for me, is borne out of a desire to create new jobs for our residents, breathe new life into an under-utilized area of the City, and to give Newport a winning platform for economic prosperity. The potent combination of the City and State working collaboratively to create this District will yield dividends particularly for our younger residents who seek employment opportunities in the city in which they live.  I look forward to being an integral part of this dynamic collaboration as your state senator.
