Ricci: GOP on the march in East Prov

Speaking of East Providence, Will Ricci sends word about a fundraiser being staged tomorrow by the East Providence Republican City Committee:

He writes:

We are going to have a very active election season in EP, as for the first time in anyone's memory, we have GOP candidates for three OPEN General Assembly seats (2 in the House and 1 in the Senate). Of course, we're also defending an incumbent GOP state representative's seat. In addition, we have many school committee and city council candidates to support. Because we have so many candidates, we're really putting a big focus on raising a lot of money. For whatever reason, what happens in East Providence can and often does affect everyone else in Rhode Island! For a change, we'd actually like it to be for the better!

Now the details:

On Thursday, June 26th, the East Providence Republican City Committee will be holding its Annual Fundraiser and Candidates Reception from 6:30 P.M. to 9:00 P.M. at the Knights of Columbus Hall, 50 Crescent View Ave., in Riverside. We have a lot of candidates, so we need to raise a lot of money!

Since the EPGOP’s Presidential Straw Poll went so well at last year’s event (Mitt Romney won it), they naturally wanted to repeat it this year. However, since the GOP has long since settled on its presidential nominee, Sen. John McCain, they had to make a slight change for 2008. As a result, this year’s EPGOP event will feature the “First Ever” GOP VICE-PRESIDENTIAL STRAW POLL (that we know of)!

Help Sen. John McCain find his VP by “voting” for: Mitt Romney, Mike Huckabee, Bobby Jindal, Charlie Crist, Sarah Palin, Ron Paul, Condi Rice, Tom Coburn, and of course, our own Don Carcieri. You can also “write in” your own VP candidate (disgruntled Hillary supporters can “vote,” too)! Straw Poll Votes are only $1 each and ballot stuffing is highly encouraged. Speakers to include Gov. DON CARCIERI, RIGOP Chair GIO CICONE, Warwick Mayor SCOTT AVEDESIAN, Hon. STEVE LAFFEY, State Representatives JACK SAVAGE and SUE STORY, E.P. City Councilman ROBERT CUSACK, and E.P. School Committeeman STEVE SANTOS, plus many state and local GOP candidates! There will also be a great Silent Auction, Catered Hors d’oeuvres and a Cash Bar. Tickets are only $20.00 per person or $35.00 per couple. As always, College Republicans get in FREE!

Conveniently RSVP ONLINE using your major credit card or electronic check securely through the EPGOP web site at To RSVP by mail, please send your ticket request along with a personal check or money order (payable to "East Providence Republican City Committee") to: EPGOP, c/o 66 Merritt Road, Riverside, RI 02915. You can print out an invitation at: State election law requires us to record the name, address, employer and occupation of contributors; corporate and business checks cannot be accepted. Maximum donation of $1000 per calendar year. We hope you can attend. Your RSVP would be greatly appreciated. A limited number of tickets will also be available at the door.
