Our site doesn’t have a paywall and all of our content and newsletters are always free to read.

Instead, reader support and advertising from local businesses power our locally owned, independent newsroom. If you like what we do, a contribution of $8/month means more than you’d think, and any amount helps.

Thank you, Newport, for your continued support of my efforts and hard work in the Rhode Island House of Representatives.  I will not let you down. Even though I ran unopposed this year, I do not take my voters and constituents for granted.

My congratulations to all the Newport winners and I look forward to working together with you to move our wonderful city forward.

Thank you to all the candidates that stepped up to run for office.  Public service is the highest form of commitment to community.

I promise to continue my tradition of holding constituent meetings throughout the District so we can continue our conversations on the future of Newport and Rhode Island. I promise to be available to you when you want government to respond to your needs.  I promise to govern thoughtfully and honestly in the future as I have in the past.

Representative Lauren H. Carson

RI House District 75 – Newport
