SNA was pleased to co-host a primary debate night along with the Mount Hope Neighborhood Association, Observatory Neighborhood Association, and the Providence Cultural Equity Initiative. We invited all candidates facing a primary for public office across the three neighborhoods, which included the open R.I. House District 4 seat, R.I. Senate District 6, and the Providence mayoral race. It was a hot and humid August night in the MLK Elementary cafeteria, but it was fantastic to see our diverse community and the candidates hoping to represent us coming together to talk about the future of Providence and Rhode Island.
If you missed it, Steve Ahlquist of UpriseRI has full video, neatly organized here:
House 4 (Rebecca Kislak and Mark Tracy)
Senate 6 (incumbent Sen. Harold Metts and Jonathan Hernandez)
Mayor (incumbent Mayor Jorge Elorza, Kobi Dennis, and Robert DeRobbio)
The primary election takes place September 12th, 2018. The Rhode Island Secretary of State’s office maintains a handy Voter Information Center with everything you need to know about voting.
