I Endorse Meghan Kallman for Senator

Published

on

I enthusiastically endorse councilwoman Meghan Kallman for the senate. I want to first commend Senator Donna Nesselbush for such an outstanding job. She has made us all proud, and her time in the senate will go down in the history books as a resounding success.

Meghan would continue Senator Nesselbush’s progress. Meghan supports many of the key issues I support especially embracing diversity and inclusion. Meghan is also a huge supporter of racial justice. As a former police officer and African American, I very well know that minorities are sent to prison far too often, and this needs to be addressed.

Meghan understands we are stronger through diversity. She has fought for the people of Pawtucket as a city councilwoman, and she fought for progressive policies that make us all better off. While I live in Providence, I have a deep love and respect for my friends in Pawtucket. I just know that when Meghan becomes senate, she’s always for inclusion, ensuring that we don’t lose any more lives, especially minorities.

Meghan supports many of the very issues I fought for on the house floor for years. She supports increasing the minimum wage to $15 an hour, addressing the housing crisis that is plaguing our state, ensuring the tax code works for everyone, and reproductive sovereignty. This is exactly why we need Meghan in the senate.

Meghan is an amazing person and leader. She has the character and dedication to make an excellent Senator, fighting for our communities, fighting for diversity, and fighting for a better tomorrow. This is exactly why I am supporting Meghan for Senate and ask you to support her too. Her dedication and passion will make our community a better place for everyone.

Please vote for Meghan Kallman on September 8th, 2020 for senate because her leadership is needed more than ever at our statehouse.
