One Providence

I have made the theme of my campaign One Providence because I believe that our City’s future rests on the recognition that your success is my success. For Providence to succeed, we must all rise and succeed together. That’s what One Providence means to me.

And as Mayor, my priority will be turning that vision into a reality by ensuring that every Providence resident has the opportunity to achieve their dreams and to have their voice heard in our shared government. You are and always will be an integral partner in every aspect of the work we do.  Together, we will make our wonderful, vibrant City an even greater place to live for all of our residents.

So, what does that mean? It means thinking boldly about how to revitalize our economy and working diligently every hour of every day to create jobs. It means making our schools the pride of their neighborhoods– buildings that encourage and promote learning rather than create barriers to it. It means increasing opportunity for youth by offering the supports they need to achieve their potential. It means creating safe and vibrant neighborhoods where people come together to create community.  It means making our transportation system one that’s centered around people, not cars. It means bringing all stakeholders to the table, from Olneyville to the East Side, from Washington Park to the North End. It means each of these pieces coming together, but at its core, it means collaboration and community.

These aren’t just talking points to me. I wouldn’t be here today if it weren’t for the people who believed in me and empowered me to achieve my dreams. I’ve been incredibly lucky, but we need to make Providence a city that works for all of us, not just those of us who are lucky.

This is what One Providence means to me, and this is the promise I’m making to each and every one of you and to the City that we all love. Throughout the campaign, I’ll be visiting and learning from residents in each of our neighborhoods. I’d love to hear what One Providence means to you, as well as any other ideas that you may have about how we can make this City a Providence that works for everyone.
