10 POLITICS JUNE 25-JULY 1, 2020 | VALLEY BREEZE | CUMBERLAND LINCOLN EDITION Paolino pursues re-election for District 17 LINCOLN – Sen. Thomas J. Paolino has announced his re-election campaign to the Rhode Island state Senate District 17 repre- senting Lincoln, North Providence and North Smithfield. Paolino said his focus "continues to be exceptional government for the residents of our district. Eliminating wasteful spending, supporting realistic budget initiatives and low- ering taxes while opposing tax increases and deficit spending has been my ultimate goal." "The COVID-19 pandemic will result in a very challenging fiscal and economic environ- ment," he said. "I have been entrusted to work on several important committees, including the Senate Finance Committee, Senate Health and Human Services Committee, and the COVID- 19 Joint Task Force, giving the residents of our district a seat at the table when discussing these important issues." Paolino asked voters to support "ongoing efforts promoting policies aimed at economic growth and job creation while keeping our dis- trict safe and pristine." He promised to continue to work to lower the cost of living and doing business in the state post-pandemic, utilizing the "billions of dollars in resources from our federal govern- ment to provide the financial assistance with- out long waits and red tape." "We must deliver the quality of life our residents have not only earned, but deserve, and they should expect nothing less," he said. "Success never comes before hard work and I am confident by working together, we will move R.I. forward to pride and prosperity." "In closing, thank you for having placed your trust in me. The experience I have gained will allow me to provide strong leader- ship as we move forward. I humbly ask you for your support and vote once again, and I pledge to continue to serve and represent all of us with ethics, transparency and account- ability," he said. Pichette running for re-election LINCOLN – District 5 Town Councilor Ken Pichette has announced that he is seeking re-elec- tion this year. Pichette said he is proud of the accomplishments that the Town Council has made during his previ- ous terms and that he "would be grateful for the opportunity to keep the momentum moving for- ward." During his tenure, Pichette said residents have seen parks renovated, police and rescue vehicles replaced, streets and sidewalks repaved, open space procured and tax rates stabilized. "We have funded the maintenance of all our school buildings and worked diligently to keep our high school project on pace. As the chairman of the Purchasing Committee, we have been able to lower the costs of many items in the project. This has saved the project hundreds of thousands of dol- lars so far," he said. He added that the coming Lincoln Youth Soccer program will be "excited to see major improve- ments to Manville Park." Pichette said some of his "most enjoyable moments" have been interacting with the com- munity and taking calls requesting help to resolve various issues. "There is no better satisfaction than seeing the town departments step up and help in this regard," he said. "We have so many great people working at Town Hall and the Police Department, who work hard to make things happen for our residents. It's a great feeling to know I helped someone in a small but meaningful way." "I'm hoping I can continue to serve the residents of District 5 for another term," he said. "I'm proud of my town and would love to be part of keeping Lincoln a desirable place to raise families, run busi- nesses and enjoying a quiet and comfortable life with everything Lincoln has to offer."
