Debbie Ruggiero

Candidate Endorsement

To the Editor:

I am writing to encourage Middletown and Jamestown voters to support and vote for Debbie Ruggiero as our District 74 Representative. I am convinced Ms. Ruggiero is the right person with the qualifications and political integrity we need.

I have had the opportunity to work with Debbie in a variety of civic activities and events. I have witnessed her willingness to pitch in and do the work needed to improve our island communities. In all these activities she has shown a willingness to assemble and understand the facts and act on those facts in the best interests of our citizens.

Rep. Ruggiero is a strong advocate of local and state activities to improve our environment. Whether participating in a coastal cleanup or planning for climate change resiliency, she has been an enthusiastic supporter of environmental action and preparing for the next, inevitable, big weather event.

As a member of the Edward King House Center Board of Directors, I have witnessed her strong support for senior citizen programs and services. The King House is largely self-supporting, but for major projects and repairs Debbie consistently and energetically supports the center’s needs.

Rep. Ruggiero is a small-business advocate. She regularly participates in economic development planning and has been extremely helpful in promoting needed business friendly legislation. She fully appreciates the need for affordable housing and has been extremely forceful in promoting affordable housing for families and seniors.

I am convinced Debbie Ruggiero is the best candidate for District 74. I intend to vote for her and I hope you will do so.

Richard P. Adams
