To the Editor:
I have known Joe Shekarchi for many years and urge the voters of Warwick’s Representative District 23 to support him in the Nov. 6 election. Joe’s background in working with small businesses gives him a keen understanding of the hard work that it takes for our entrepreneurs to start and grow a small business and how government can best assist. His work with the Warwick Housing Authority has given him tremendous insight on the importance of affordable housing – an issue important to all families in our state, those just starting out and those in their retirement years.
With 17 percent of its population age 65 and over, Warwick has a higher percent of older residents than the state as a whole. Joe recognizes this and has committed to being a forceful advocate for our senior citizens. Joe Shekarchi will bring energy and fresh ideas to his work as a legislator and a commitment to work on behalf of the people of the 23rd District and residents of Warwick. As a former state legislator from Warwick, I am pleased to support Joe’s candidacy.
