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
