Citizens of Smithfield and Glocester,

Representing District 53 and the great state of Rhode Island since being elected in 2022 has been a profound privilege and honor. Regrettably, I have made the difficult decision to not seek re-election this fall. Rest assured; I will continue to serve with dedication for the remainder of my term but will not be pursuing another.

My priority must shift closer to home as my oldest child courageously faces a severe and relentless illness, which is now entering a critical phase. It is imperative that I dedicate myself fully to supporting and caring for my son during this challenging time, making it impossible to devote the necessary energy to both my family and my civic duties. I share this information with a request of prayer and privacy for my family and myself moving forward during this time.

The overwhelming support my family has received from friends and neighbors has made this decision all the more difficult. I am deeply grateful for the trust and support I have received and seek your understanding during this challenging time for my family. My commitment has always been to God, family, and public service, in that order.
