Carson said, “Thank you to everyone who took the time to share their views. I would like to discuss the results of the survey with my constituents, so I am hosting a meeting on the evening of March 21. Please join me at Newport Public Library at 6PM. It will be a good opportunity to get together and have a conversation about what people care about. I also look forward to updating the community on legislation that I am currently working on at the state house.
