Real Hope & Change: East Providence GOP Fundraiser

Monique Chartier

Tomorrow 6:30 - 9:00 pm at the Knights of Columbus Hall, 50 Crescent View Avenue.

Good food and lots of interesting speakers. Details here.

East Providence has been one of the major battlegrounds Ground Zero's for reform in Rhode Island. It's always fun (and enlightening) to drop in on events there.

Thanks for the plug. Not that I'm spamming you here, but...


What a year it's been for the City of East Providence — and especially for the East Providence GOP! You know what we've been up to this year — and so do the powerful special interests who are working hard to stop real change, in order to preserve the status quo which has for so long benefited them. On Thursday, November 5th, the East Providence Republican Party will hold what just may be its biggest and best fundraising event ever. We want YOU to be a part of the excitement!

We know that East Providence will be on the frontlines of the Battle for Rhode Island in 2010. Between now and then, we will be waging an unprecedented effort to raise money, to actively recruit and fully back quality candidates for every state and local office. However, to do that, we will need significant financial support from people who live outside of East Providence. You may say, “Why should I help Republicans in a city that I don’t live in?” The answer: Unlike in Las Vegas, what happens in East Providence isn’t going to stay in East Providence. If we don't succeed, YOUR city or town will be next.

The members of the East Providence Republican City Committee cordially invite all reform-minded citizens to attend its upcoming “Fantastic Fall Fundraiser,” which will be held on Thursday, November 5th, 2009, at the Knights of Columbus Hall, at 50 Crescent View Avenue in Riverside, from 6:30 P.M. to 9:00 P.M.

The event will feature plenty of catered Heavy Hors d’Oeuvres with a Cash Bar, a great Silent Auction, and “The Very First” 2012 Presidential Straw Poll, as well as a top-notch Speaking Program including:

Governor Donald L. Carcieri
Cranston Mayor Allan Fung
Warwick Mayor Scott Avedesian
East Providence Assistant Mayor Robert Cusack
East Providence School Committee Vice-Chair Steven Santos
R.I. Republican Party Chairman Giovanni Cicione
R.I. Congressional candidate John Loughlin (Dist. 1)
R.I. Congressional candidate Mark Zaccaria (Dist. 2)
R.I. Attorney General candidate Erik Wallin
R.I. Tea Party Founder Colleen Conley
R.I. General Assembly candidate Thomas Clupny (Dist. 62)

… and there might be a few more surprises, too!
