Laurelmead community continues to be a preferred whistle-stop for those running for election in 2018. Just to name a few… Governor Gina Raimondo stopped by for an exclusive Meet & Greet with the residents on October 16th. Gubernatorial candidate Mayor Alan Fung stopped by that same afternoon. Providence Mayoral candidates Mayor Jorge Elorza and Dianne “Dee Dee” Witman had a spirited discussion in our Odeon theater on October 30th. And Sheldon Whitehouse, who is seeking re-election to the US Senate, hosted a luncheon for the residents on Halloween Day. He was joined by US Congressman David Cicilline, Mayor Elorza and Peter Neronha, candidate for Attorney General.
And since Laurelmead is a polling station for the surrounding neighborhood, our residents don’t even need to leave the building to cast their vote.
