Representative-elect Lauren H. Carson is surrounded by enthusiastic supporters on the evening of Tuesday, Sept. 9, as the Democratic primary election results pointed towards a victory in her campaign to unseat incumbent Peter F. Martin in Rhode Island House District 75. Carson’s grassroots door-to-door approach was a mainstay of her strategy and characterized her political philosophy of connecting with voters on a personal level. Carson is unopposed in the November general election and will take her seat as a new legislator when the General Assembly convenes in January.
