Learn more about our new State Rep. Megan Cotter in this interview. It's so encouraging to finally have a representative who is eloquent, enthusiastic, invested in the community, and dedicated to working on the issues that are of concern to constituents.
Rhode Island House of Representatives Rep. Megan Cotter has deep roots in Rhode Island and is consistently cheered on by her family, friends and neighbors.
As a Representative, she's looking to make changes this Session that will benefit RIers starting with legislation that protects jobs in grocery stores. In her other profession, she sells squid...the State's official appetizer. Cotter explains her story in this RI Capitol TV Capitol Spotlight interview.
RDTC has been proud to work alongside with the Friends of the Saugatucket and concerned community members as we care for our town by collecting 50-ml plastic alcohol bottles, or 'nips'. Thank you to Bill McCusker for being a leader in the effort to pass a bottle bill in RI, #H5502.
Join the RDTC as for a cleanup in partnership with the Friends of the Saugatucket. From now until March 27th, we'll be collecting 50ml liquor bottles, with three scheduled dates for group cleanups. We will also be collecting on our own personal time.

"One of my goals as a new councilor is to ensure residents are informed. While canvassing, I often heard that residents felt like they had to be on social media to receive information.
To help communication, I have started (and hope to continue) to provide councilor updates periodically. My intention is that residents can be informed of decisions I have made, my reasoning for decisions and upcoming topics. It will reflect my opinion and not the thoughts or opinions of other groups/individuals. These posts can be found HERE and you can sign up to receive an email after posting.
I look forward to serving you on Town Council and please do not hesitate to reach out to me directly if you have any questions."
We meet on the fourth Wednesday of each month at the Richmond Community/Senior Center (2nd floor of the Richmond Police Station) at
6:30 pm. New members welcome!
