Dear East Side residents,
Thank you for your time, attention, and consideration in the 2021 Special Election for Rhode Island General Assembly, Senate District 3. I am grateful for the opportunity to have met so many of you and the chance to counter the ideological hegemony of politics in urban Rhode Island.
Competing ideas and their representation in local government serve the important function of balancing the conerns of all citizens, not just the majority. I chose to run for office with the hope of bringing a competing perspective. Although we did not succeed in securing this representation for the City of Providence the effort was necessary and worthwhile.
I will continue pursuing elected office in Rhode Island, serving the community to the best of my ability & capacity, and making a stand for our shared values of freedom, prosperity, and opportunity for all.
I sincerely thank each one of you for getting to the polls on November 2nd, 2021 and casting your vote for Alex W. Cannon.
Alex W. Cannon
