Representative Lauren Carson (D-Dist. 75, Newport)

Rhode Island House Representative Lauren Carson (District 75, Newport) has released a survey to her constituents concerning issues facing the Ocean State.

Newporters can voice their opinion on the importance of topics such as the expansion of gun safety measures, climate change and sea-level rise, broadband expansion, the impact of the Newport Pell Bridge realignment, and – of course – the COVID-19 pandemic.

Carson said, “I am hopeful for our state as we enter a new session and as we navigate uncharted territory in regard to the COVID-19 pandemic. Rest assured – I, along with my House colleagues, am continuing my work to represent the needs of my neighbors in District 75. The responses of this survey will guide my legislative work and my votes in the Rhode Island House of Representatives during this important session.”
