Received the following press release in my email. It is reproduced verbatim here as a public service to East Side voters:
From College Republicans of Johnson & Wales University
A Young College Republican Upset that his District is paying more of there fare share into the city and the State of Rhode Island.
Johnson & Wales University College Republican President Russell Taub considers running for either city council in Providence or for the State House in 2014 at Edith Ajello.
H. Russell Taub 25 years old student at Johnson & Wales University studying hospitality and entrepreneurship is a member of many campus organization starts to gather information on issues that his district faces and what changes need to start happening.
H. Russell Taub who participated in this year Hanukkah lighting says he feels that that Jewish Community has been ignored when the state house did not even have the Hanukkah lighting on the calender for people to look up or attend. Even Governor Chafee staff had no idea when or if it was still happening, creating a feeling of not caring about the Jewish Community. And that Christmas is more important than any other holiday.
He went to Fairleigh Dickinson University to study politics and foreign relations, which he did for three years before he given an opportunity to be part of the Social Humanitarian Committee on Indigenous Affairs as an NGO Rep. at the United Nations for one year. After that he transferred to Johnson & Wales University. Currently H. Russell Taub represents many organizations including a social group designed to promote the State of the Rhode Island and its job to promote businesses and the state with foreign governments, the group is called the United Nations Association of Rhode Island. He also works for the Blackstone Valley Tourism Council as the Relationship Manager and part of the RIGOP Finance Committee as an educational resource for him to learn from. He recently was part of the polar express in Woonsocket where the Tourism Council was solely responsible for bringing roughly 11,500 people to the city of Woonsocket. Last year he was appointed by the International Human Rights Commission to Ambassador to the USA at the age 24.
H. Russell Taub maybe a republican but he is very much bi partisan politician who believes in working together is the only way that we can start to solve Rhode Island problems. He does not stand for party politics at all he stands for the community and what his constituents wants.
He believes in property tax reform, bipartisan women in leadership and entrepreneurship, accountability of taxes, and making sure those who are paying more of there fare share do not have to any more.
More news will come in the next weeks to weather or not he will run and if so what he will run for.From College RepublicanH. Russell Taub
