Letter to the Editor,

I want to express my uttermost support and endorsement for Senate candidate Michael Smith. Working in the field beside him for the last few months I have had the distinct pleasure of getting to know Michael and his beautiful family. He is a hard working self made business owner. His children attend the public school system in Newport therefore he know very well the challenge our school system faces. He is a dedicated family man who lives in Newport. He holds dear the traditional family values we so desperately need to regain on Smith Hill. Most importantly he is not beholden to ANY special interest groups therefore he will serve YOU. Please join in support of the best candidate on the ballot August 22nd. Rhode Islanders deserve balance and a change from our 80+ years of a lopsided General Assembly.

RI State Senator Elaine J. Morgan
District 34 – Charlestown/Hopkinton/Exeter/ Richmond/W. Greenwich
