Chairman's Page

We are well into an exciting and historic Presidential election season. With two of the finest and strongest Democrats - former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders - offering solid leadership skills and proven experience, and engaging millions of American voters, the Democratic Party is well on its way to victory at the polls come November. 

Before we get there, we will make a stop in the City of Brotherly and Sisterly Love - Philadelphia PA - for the 2016 Democratic National Convention. Proudly, we will be bringing 33 Delegates and two Alternates, along with our Delegation Chair - Speaker of the House Nicholas A. Mattiello - and Vice Chair John D. Hamilton - to represent Rhode Island in this Convention, and in the nomination of our next Democratic Presidential nominee.

Follow our updates, here, at this site and in the media, and most importantly - remember to Vote!
