“Monica has been advocating on behalf of her community for years, long before there was an election,” Women’s Caucus Chair Liz Gledhill noted. “Her dedication to the quality of life for the residents of Providence and her commitment to protecting the environment set her apart from the other candidates and the RIDPWC is proud to support her in this election.”
