Lincoln Dems Endorse Cicilline

Monday, June 18, 2018

LINCOLN - The Lincoln Democratic Town Committee has voted unanimously to endorse Congressman David N. Cicilline (RI-01) for re-election this fall. 

“David Cicilline is a strong Democratic force in Congress and the LincolnDemocratic Town Committee is proud to endorse him for his re-election,” said Chairwoman Abby Altabef. “We look forward to supporting his continued efforts towards fair and equitable governance for all people.” 

During his time in Congress, Cicilline has emerged as a leading voice for reinvigorating American manufacturing, enhancing job training and education opportunities, ensuring access to affordable health care, and securing the future of Medicare and Social Security. He has consistently delivered results for Rhode Island, securing more than $240 million in grants and appropriations since January 2017. Cicilline advocated directly to FEMA to help obtain grants exceeding $425,000 to assist local fire districts in the Town of Lincoln with the purchasing of new communications equipment and thermal imagers. 

Following the 2016 general election, the full House Democratic Caucus elected Cicilline to serve as Co-Chair of the Democratic Policy and Communication Committee (DPCC). In this role, as a member of the House Democratic Leadership, Cicilline gives Rhode Island its strongest voice in the House in at least a generation. Cicilline is the first Rhode Islander with a seat at the House Democratic Leadership table since Patrick J. Kennedy served as Chair of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee from 1999 until 2001. 

“I’m incredibly thankful to have the full support of the Lincoln Democratic Town Committee," said Cicilline. “I look forward to working alongside the committee members in this important election year to fight for investments in education and infrastructure, and to create greater opportunities for hardworking Rhode Islanders. 

Cicilline is seeking re-election to represent Rhode Island’s First Congressional District in the U.S. House of Representatives. The Democratic primary will take place Wednesday, September 12th. This year’s general election falls on Tuesday, November 6th. 

The mission of the Lincoln Democratic Town Committee is to enhance the quality of life for Lincoln residents. The Committee is working hard to elect a strong Democratic slate in the fall and to advance Democratic Party ideals at the local, state, and federal level.
