“Today is a historic day in Rhode Island and I want to offer my congratulations to Sabina Matos on her confirmation as our state’s next Lieutenant Governor – I am thrilled to have her join our team. I also want to thank Senate President Ruggerio and the entire Senate for swiftly taking up this confirmation.
Sabina understands the challenges facing Rhode Island families and she shares my commitment to supporting our municipalities and small businesses. I look forward to having her as my governing partner as we work to get shots in arms as quickly as possible so we can get Rhode Islanders back to work, businesses back in business, and students back in the classroom safely.
We are committed to showing Rhode Island how a Governor and Lieutenant Governor can work and govern together for the benefit of residents in all 39 cities and towns.”
