Want to rub elbows with Congressman Jim Langevin? Maybe you’d like to meet gubernatorial candidate Clay Pell? Or perhaps you want to talk to legislative candidates David Bennett, Joe Shekarchi, Nick Denice, Joseph Solomon Jr., or Jennifer Siciliano?
If so, they will all be at the Warwick Public Library tonight at 5:30 for the Warwick Progressive Democrats second annual Meet & Greet.
Here’s the Facebook event, and here’s the full release we sent out:
The Warwick Progressive Democrats, an affiliate of the RI Chapter of the Progressive Democrats of America (RIPDA), is proud to host its second annual Meet & Greet for officeholders, candidates, and voters! All candidates are welcome to attend, whether or not they have been endorsed by RIPDA — the focus of this event is on the discussion and advancement of ideas through promoting candidates speaking directly with Rhode Island voters and residents. Candidates attending include Congressman Langevin, gubernatorial candidate Clay Pell*, State Representatives David Bennett (D-20)* and Joe Shekarchi (D-23) and State Rep candidates Jennifer Siciliano* Joe Solomon Jr. (both D-22), and Nick Denice (D-26), along with members of and candidates for Warwick City Council.
Meet us in the Large Room of the Warwick Public Library on Thursday, August 21 starting at 5:30 to speak one-on-one with candidates for office while enjoying pizza from Cosmic Pizza (donated by Rep. Shekarchi) and refreshments. This is a free event, not a fundraiser or endorsement hearing, and all are welcome to attend. Bring your friends and family!
The top priority for the Warwick Progressive Democrats is creating well-paying jobs for Rhode Islanders through raising the minimum wage and better distributing the tax burden. Democratic candidates appearing on ballots in Warwick will receive an introduction and our thanks should they be willing to fill out a questionnaire. A copy of the questionnaire will be available to view at the event.
*An asterisk indicates that these candidates have been endorsed by RIPDA. Please note that the Warwick Progressive Democrats does not have a PAC and will not endorse candidates in 2014, and that RIPDA, with its own PAC, has its own endorsement process. This event should not be construed as an endorsement – all candidates will be given equal opportunity at this event.

I hope that you can join us at our meet & greet!
