3 Portsmouth Residents To Attend GOP Convention
These Portsmouth residents will head to the Republican National Convention next week!
Portsmouth residents John Robitaille, Lynda Adams-Robitaille and state Rep. Daniel Reilly are likely packing their bags this week to prepare for the Republican National Convention in Tampa, FL, next week.
But just who are these delegates heading to the Republican National Convention? Here's a short bio about Portsmouth's delegates.
John Robitaille and Lynda Adams-Robitaille
John Robitaille is no stranger to politics after coming in second place in the 2010 gubernatorial election against Lincoln Chafee. The Republican managed to grab hold of 33.6 percent of the vote.
Robitaille, who formerly served as Gov. Donald L. Carcieri's senior communications adviser, has lived in Portsmouth with his wife for 16 years. In 2011, he accepted a position with Johnson and Wales University.
Lynda Adams-Robitaille, along with her husband, John Robitaille, ran a small communications firm in Middletown for 20 years.
State Rep. Daniel Reilly
Rep. Dan P. Reilly (Republican, Dist. 72 - Middletown, Newport and Portsmouth) is not the ordinary new college graduate. This spring, Reilly not only graduated from Providence College with a bachelor's degree in general studies, but he also announced his plans to run for a second term.
Reilly serves on six committees. The 23-year-old Portsmouth resident will attend Roger Williams Law School in the fall.
When Reilly is not in the classroom or at the State House, he also serves as a volunteer EMT on the Bristol Fire Department.
