Rep. Mendonca

Candidate Endorsement

The Vasco da Gama Portuguese/ American Society is a recognized 501C3 non-profit organization providing financial assistance to many local individuals and groups. Although our non-profit status is recognized by the City of Newport we have worked to gain such status with the State of Rhode Island for the past eight years.

As a small charitable group we do not pay a great amount in State taxes, but we feel every dime we save can go back into or organization to further efforts to help those in need.

Several of our Board members are constituents of Rep. Mendonca and reached out to Ken for help. He recognized the value in our organization and worked to help us.

We appreciate the help that Rep. Mendonca has given to us in this matter.

John P. Dias
