LETTER: Wilkens Asks For Your Vote

Candidate Chris Wilkens wants your vote for District 34 on Nov. 6.

To the editor,

I believe that the only legitimate reason to run for General Assembly in 2012 is out of an overwhelming concern for the now and future of our community and state. This is why I am running and ask for your vote.

We must stop drifting from crisis to crisis without a vision, sense of purpose or urgency to fix the problems that have plagued our state for so long. All of my campaign literature and yard signs all have the motto – “Restore Rhode Island."  

I am committed to finding solutions that will help make our state a place where people and business move to, not from... Where the tax burden is among the lowest, not the highest... Where employment opportunities for our children are plentiful, not rare… And where the representatives of the people are committed to the high calling of making Rhode Island the model of the most dramatic turnaround in the country.

Let’s just fix Rhode Island. No more excuses and no more blame!

I ask you for your vote on Nov. 6 because it is not about me – it’s about us! Thank you.

- Chris Wilkens, candidate for District 34

Hi, I have no patience for name-calling, etc. Teresa has stated in public that she will not hold a Town Hall Meeting like other reps do around our state. That's a dealbreaker for me. At the very least I should expect my state rep. to reach out to me, and not expect me to be trying to connect with her. I don't know Chris... I only see that he has worked with Democrats for six years; been a gentleman and facilitator of good things in Narragansett. I live in SK... I want a rep. who gets my life and knows that I am barely hanging on to my job and my house. We need to get some balance in our state.

I agree with you Nancy.

Judgment? Haters? Seriously? Wilkens is a decent guy who will do the decent thing. There's no hate nor conspiracy here... just folks who feel that Chris is one of us... and will work hard and tell us the truth. More importantly, he has lived here for 34 years and won't forget where he came from and who he is.

I will proudly be voting to re-elect Teresa - she has done everything she said she would, and more. She has passed a ban on out-of-state pair trawlers to keep jobs in Galilee. She was the one to figure out why the final bike path extension was stalled, and got it out of DOT gridlock. I love that she puts her personal cell phone number on everything - I've never had a hard time reaching her. And this past week when I had to report the damage to my home, she was the one who helped me report the claim to 2-1-1 and the town as well as my insurer. She has been a tireless advocate for our community and has consistently worked collaboratively with all stakeholders to find smart and practical solutions. Tanzi for Today and Tomorrow!!

Ms Tanzi is way too far left in her views. Mr Wilkens would be a much better choice for residents of Narragansett. Good Luck Chris !!! Michael G Riley Narragansett
