Battle of the General Assembly candidates


With the RI GOP pressing an effort to pick up legislative seats in November, N4N will be on the lookout for the candidates exhibiting the most imagination in their campaign events.

Donna Perry, challenging Senate Majority Leader Teresa Paiva Weed, shows she's got some game with this entry, via the state GOP:

Donna Perry of Jamestown, who last week announced her campaign for State Senate district 13, will host a “Nomination Papers” cocktail party to collect signatures for her campaign on Tuesday evening, July 8th, from 6:00pm-8:00pm at Trattoria Simpatico restaurant.

Perry, who has been Executive Director of the state Republican Party, is challenging Senator Teresa Paiva-Weed for senate district 13, which encompasses Jamestown and Newport.

“I invite all Jamestowners who are interested in seeing a change of course at the State House to stop by Simpatico and join me,” Perry says.

Light hors d’ oeuvres will be offered at the reception, which will be held in the air-conditioned, inside dining room.

No RSVP is required. Anyone interested in learning more about Donna’s campaign, can contact the candidate at
