Coventry – Thursday night (May 1), Nellie Gorbea, Democratic candidate for Secretary of State, won the overwhelming support of the Coventry Democratic Town Committee.
"Nellie’s experience with that office is undeniable. Her long-standing commitment to civic engagement and increasing voter participation make her the most qualified person to be Rhode Island’s next Secretary of State,” Said Frank Hyde, Coventry Democratic Town Committee Chairman.
This is Gorbea’s second Democratic Town Committee endorsement this week. On Thursday, Gorbea announced the support of the Tiverton Democratic Town Committee.
“I appreciate the Coventry Democratic Town Committee’s strong support. It is clear that we share a commitment to make sure that everyone who is eligible to cast a ballot, can and does vote,” stated Gorbea. “Elections should be fair, fast and accurate. Online voter registration is a critical next step to ensuring that it’s easier for people to vote and I actually have the professional experience to make sure this happens.”
