Young Democrats of Rhode Island
The Young Democrats of Rhode Island (YDRI) has voted to endorse John Goncalves for Providence City Council Ward 1. John has been a life long member of the Fox Point community, he is currently an educator at The Wheeler School and graduated from Brown University with both his undergraduate and Masters. John has been an exemplary member of his community serving as a board member of the Fox Point Neighborhood Association. John was also involved in the founding of the Providence Coalition of Neighborhood Associations that has included representation from over 19 neighborhood associations across the city.
As the Young Democrats of Rhode Island, our mission is to empower the young people of our state to become involved and John Goncalves is a wonderful example of that! Goncalves has spent much of his time listening to the people of Ward 1 and it has showed through his advocacy for small businesses and his work on Providence property taxes. Goncalves has spoken on issues of environmental justice, public education, and affordable housing, he is truly a voice for not only his community but also for the young Democrats he is going to represent!
The Young Democrats of Rhode Island looks forward to working to see Goncalves to victory on the June 2nd General Election.
