Join the Campaign


I am running for mayor to work with you to lead Providence to its place among the great American cities. 

Our city faces real challenges today. We must create more jobs and better schools. We must unite our community and create opportunity – for all.  

As a community and business leader, I have the experience and values that are necessary to bring us together, solve big problems, and create lasting and meaningful change. 

I’m ready to make tough decisions, and break through the barriers that slow us down. No one can do it alone, but together we can – and we will make Providence one of the best cities to live, work and learn in.   

I’m running for mayor because I believe we can make Providence better – now. Please join me. 


What I Believe

  • People pulling together can accomplish extraordinary things
  • Every family deserves great schools, good-paying jobs, and a safe neighborhood
  • City government should deliver on its promises, and safeguard public resources and public trust.
  • When we all step up and serve everyone wins

“I want to engage in the hard but necessary work of forging a better direction for Providence in the next eight years.”
