“We’re happy to have this opportunity to connect with our neighbors as the 2018 legislative session gets started. Senator Euer and I are looking forward to hearing what the people of Newport would like to see us accomplish at the State House and to discussing the issues facing the state this year,” said Representative Carson (D-Dist. 75, Newport).

Said Senator Euer (D-Dist. 13, Newport, Jamestown), “We’d like to encourage all of our constituents in Newport and Jamestown to stop by and chat with us. We are your voice at the State House, and we rely on conversations with you to represent our community and its needs. We want to hear what’s on your minds, and we will listen.”

Senator Euer and Representative Carson said they plan to focus their energies this year particularly on issues affecting senior citizens, the environment, government transparency and small business.
