Gately Gunning for District 26 Seat Again

The Gately for Senate campaign today announced that Republican Sean Gately is running for the Dist. 26 seat in the Rhode Island Senate this November. He ran last year and narrowly lost against Sen. Beatrice Lanzi.

Republican Sean Gately announced today that he is running for the District 26 seat in the Rhode Island Senate this November.

"I am the only pro-citizen, pro-business, pro-taxpayer candidate in this race, and it is time to have a voice for your interest and not special interest in the Dist. 26 seat," Gately said in a release.

Gately lost to incumbent Beatrice Lanzi by 302 votes, according to the Rhode Island Board of Election's website.

He criticized Lanzi for voting for an expansion to the car tax and "as one of the deciding votes in the Senate, the binding arbitration legislation that would handcuff Cranston to unsustainable contracts, increase property taxes and cause further cuts to our already diminished school programs such as music and sports," the release stated. "I have seen firsthand the damage these reckless votes have wrought."

One of Gately's campaign promises is to give the city the ability to suspend COLAs and "prevent bankruptcy."

He also supports legislation that would consolidate school districts and municipal purchasing and "legislation that will restore home values and protect everyone's retirement and savings."

"My opponent has raised over $100,000 in campaign contributions from union PACs and publicly claims that they do not influence her voting record," Gately said. "Does she really think that we're naive?"

The address for Gately's website is www.Gately4Senate.com

Good thing for him that his opponent is not very savvy with their research into his past.
