There will be no primary this year for Town Council and School Committee races, but voters in both political parties do have choices for statewide races. North Smithfield residents located in District 49 will have the chance to weigh in on a Democratic primary between Alexander Kithes of Woonsocket and Glenn Dusablon of North Smithfield, and Senate District 24 has a Republican primary between David Slavin and Craig Lacouture.

  1. God Bless, this group of solid Representatives. Three cheers for supporting the sanctity of life and each State deciding on facts where it stands on the issue. This along with the citizens of this beautiful Republic being able to exercise their God given rights to responsibly bear arms to defend themselves, family, and the community. At the end of the day hysterical undisciplined emotional political rants are divisive and clearly lower the standing of our wonderful factually inclusive community at large.

  3. If you don’t believe in a woman’s right to choose, these are the candidates for you. If however you believe that women should have reproductive rights or that you need to be 21 to get an assault rifle, you should vote for others. Certainly if you visit Vote Smart, an impartial organization, formed by Democrats and Republicans, you can view all of their votes that have been taken while they have been in office. If you are going to vote, be informed. Do not let your vote be taken for granted.
