Via Newport Democratic City Committee (NDCC)
Zoom Presentation: February 9, 2021 at 7:15 PM
7:15 pm is an odd start time, but the Newport Democratic City Committee is delighted to present two State Officials who are extremely busy in this period leading up to the special election on March 2, 2021. They’re able to come together on this night at this time – one day before early in-person voting begins, when Rhode Islanders are asked to approve seven bonds:
- $107.3 million for higher education facilities: the University of Rhode Island Fine Arts Center, the Rhode Island College Clarke Science Building, and the Community College of Rhode Island
- $74 million for state beaches, parks, recreational facilities, and water
- $65 million for affordable housing and community revitalization through redevelopment, new construction, and property aquisition
- $71.7 million for transportation infrastructure
- $15 million for the Early Childhood Care and Education Capital Fund
- $7 million for the Cultural Arts and the Economy Grant Program and the State Preservation Grants Program
- $60 million to fund improvements to industrial facilities infrastructure
Should these bond measures earn the support of a public worn weary by this historic pandemic? Treasurer Seth Magaziner will speak about the overall outlook for the state’s economy and the economics behind bond funding. Secretary of State Nellie Gorbea will present on each of the bonds. We will follow their presentations with a Q and A.
The NDCC is committed to bringing relevant and timely information to the voters of Newport. Become informed, learn the facts, join a live Zoom with Nellie Gorbea, Seth Magaziner and Newport’s Democratic City Committee.
