Working Hard for Rhode Island

It has been my honor to serve the women, men, and families of Rhode Island’s First Congressional District. These have been extremely difficult times for our state and nation, and I am working hard every day to deliver results for Rhode Islanders. Whether it is advocating for federal funding to help Rhode Island recover from this pandemic, championing infrastructure investments that create good paying jobs in our state, leading the fight to combat corporate monopolies, end price gouging, and provide relief to consumers, fighting for the priorities that reflect our shared values, or helping constituents secure the benefits they’ve earned and deserve – I am grateful for the opportunity to be there for Rhode Islanders. I humbly ask for your support so we can continue this work together. – David N. Cicilline, Member of Congress

WASHINGTON - U.S. Congressman David N. Cicilline (D-RI) issued the following statement after Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan claimed "there is no country named Cyprus:" "I am appalled by Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan’s insensitive comments this week regarding the sovereign nation of Cyprus. The Prime Minister’s refusal to acknowledge the illegal occupation of Cyprus, the religious freedom of Greek Cypriots, and the legitimacy of this great nation is an affront to anyone who respects the rule of law and Cyprus’s right to self-determination. I urge the Obama administration to immediately repudiate these comments in the strongest possible terms and reiterate the United States’ longstanding support and recognition of the Republic of Cyprus."
