Record of Service
As of December 2011, I will have completed three years of service to the people of District 75. Because of my availability, I have been able to
treat this opportunity as a 'full time job'. |
I am happy to announce that I have achieved my goal of having a perfect attendance record for the past three years. Not only was I in attendance at every House of Representative session but I attended every meeting of every committee to which I was assigned [except one short meeting on the last night of the 2010 session when 3 meetings were scheduled concurrently. I was only able to make it to two of the meetings].
The only time that I was absent from the House floor was when I left a session early to attend a dinner at which I was honored by the National Association of Social Workers as the "Rhode Island Legislator of the Year".
Committee AssignmentsDuring this first term of office, I have had the pleasure of serving on the following House of Representatives committees:
Interaction with other RepresentativesDuring my first term of office, I served on at least one committee with 48 of the 75 representatives. That allowed me to get to know the other representatives and for them to get to know me.
Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission
I have also been appointed as the Rhode Island Legislative Delegate to the Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission. This has put me in a position to help the local fishing industry including those who operate out of the State Pier at the end of Long Wharf. This assignment requires me to travel out-of-state to commission meetings and to attend local meetings of various commercial and recreational fishing groups.
