A Message from Lauren
Thank you for taking the time to visit my website, to learn about my values, and to learn about my commitment for representing Newport in the RI Assembly from House District 75.
I am Putting Newport First.
I believe that Newport is a very special community and I am an active Representative to State Government.
As State Representative I remind the Rhode Island Assembly that Newport is a world renowned community and the star of our State. I commit to our shared vision of Newport, the community that we love. I will support economic vitality, environmental resilience and the quality of life that has drawn us to live in this special place.
I have lived in Newport for over 20 years and I believe that public service is imperative for all of us. My unique combination of business and advocacy experience has prepared me for this Assembly seat to represent Newport. My years of experience as a civic leader, small business owner and community advocate in Newport have led me to take this next step of public service.
Employed by Rhode Island Clean Water Action, I also serve on the Advisory Board of the Alliance for Livable Newport and the Newport Energy & Environment Commission. I obtained an MA in history from the University of Rhode Island in 2008, my MBA from URI in 1992, and a BA in sociology from Ramapo College in New Jersey. I'm a graduate of Benedictine Academy in Elizabeth, New Jersey. Born on February 26, 1954, I'm the mother of one son, Andrew.
