Representative Lauren Carson called into the program around 12:30pm to announce for the first time that she would be running for re-election in November to continue representing District 75 in the House of Representatives.
Newport City Council Candidate Jamie Bova called into the program around 12:45pm to announce that she was running for City Councilor-At-Large and discussed some of the opportunities and challenges she sees moving forward for the City.
