News and Events
Rep. Megan Cotter speaking to Eath Day gathering

We had great turnout at our Earth Day celebration yesterday at Higher Grounds! While the rain kept us indoors for coffee, we heard from Representative Megan Cotter from District 39 on her new Green Bond initiative, and Liz Beretta Perik, the chair for the Rhode Island Democratic party. Check out our Earth Day picture gallery!

While Senator Whitehouse had planned to join us, he had to remain in DC today to vote for a number of key bills, including the critical foreign aid legislation that has been in the spotlight this past week. We’ll look for another opportunity to bring him out to Richmond.

Yesterday, we were also joined by Representative Victoria Gu from District 38, Councilmember Wilcox from Richmond, Chariho Committee members Jessica Purcell and Karen Reynolds, and a number of folks from the Richmond, Hopkinton, and Charlestown communities.

For those looking for a sunnier day to help with clean-up, the Richmond Conservation Commission is still hosting their Earth Day clean-up today – sign up with your group and pick up your clean-up kit at the Richmond Town Hall.


Voting in Richmond Elections and Referendums

With a series of elections and referendums coming up this year, it’s worth highlighting that there are a number of different ways to vote. First, it’s worth highlighting how to register to vote. For most elections, you have to register to vote at least thirty days before the election. However, in Rhode Island, you can register to vote the same day that you vote, but you’ll only be able to cast a vote for the President that day.

shannock village

Scenes from an informative tour of Shannock Village in Richmond on Saturday morning. Participants started the tour in the space that is expected to become a small riverside restaurant. There were discussions of future mixed-use development that included a variety of housing, community green space, and the ongoing site remediation efforts.

Thanks to the Richmond Economic Development Commission for arranging this event.
