The following are statements from the RI NOW PAC:
Secretary of State: Nellie Gorbea
RI NOW is proud to endorse Nellie Gorbea for Secretary of State. Nellie has an impressive track record in public service and is uniquely experienced in the inner workings of the office of Secretary of State. During her tenure as Deputy Secretary of State, Nellie demonstrated her commitment to gender equity and empowering others by increasing diversity in the office's staff. She was recently named as a Gamechanger by the Women's Campaign Fund because of her passion for creating opportunities for underrepresented communities. Nellie will be the first Latina candidate on a statewide ballot in Rhode Island and we are excited to support her in her race for Secretary of State.
According to RI NOW PAC Chair Carolyn Mark: "The RI NOW PAC is committed to electing progressive women and men to public office. We are excited to be making these endorsements today because we think both of these candidates reflect the values and policy priorities of our organization."
