The Young Democrats of Rhode Island Political Action Committee (YDRI PAC) is proud to announce our 2018 general election endorsements. “These candidates were selected based on their commitment to the values that young Rhode Islanders care about. They earned our endorsement because of their willingness to take a hard stand on the most pressing issues of our time. These values include: Fighting to reverse the effects of climate change through rapid expansion of our green energy economy; investing in our schools and teachers; fighting for a $15 living minimum wage; expanding protections for workers; standing strong for women’s right to choose, and ensuring every Rhode Islander has access to a high quality, affordable education, housing, and health care,” said YDRI PAC Chair Michael Beauregard.
Beauregard continued, “We were proud to have over 28 young democrats run for various statewide offices in RI and our members have volunteered for these candidates all election season. We helped to make a difference in a number of primary elections this year, and we intend to continue this critical work on November 6. If you’re a young voter wondering who to support and who shares your values in RI, consider these leaders.”
