To the Editor:

I would like to say thank you on behalf of a grateful community to Amy Doran and all of her sew-ers for their time, energy, commitment, and creativity in making protective masks for all on Block Island. If we are ever able to have another parade, I hope the sew-ers will consider having a float.

It would be wonderful to have the opportunity to cheer for them and they deserve the loud and enthusiastic accolades of a whole community.

To the Editor:

As the co-chair of the Rhode Island for Trump 2020 Campaign, we have had to put many, if not all, of our events on hold. We had a special event planned with special guest John Pence (the Vice President’s nephew). We had other surrogates to follow, and hopefully Donald Trump Jr. would have been one of them.

Our Presidential Committee has not met due to the limitations on meetings, but we are hoping the guidelines will be relaxed soon enough for us to get together again at the farm and continue right where we left off. As we all stay tuned to our TV’s, we all watch Gov. Raimondo attempt to get the state back to work again. I think it’s a real big win that Honeywell here in Rhode Island has started production to make masks and we hope to see the President come here in person to thank them.

Let me talk to you a bit about the President.

Have you ever seen someone so strong, juggle so many balls, get criticized for all his good work, constantly get badgered for his small faults that he (and so many of us) has, and how he informs us and does not lecture us. That is the big difference between him and our Governor. I don’t want to be lectured. I just want facts. Look at how quickly he turned the ventilator shortage around, got the Navy ships to New York and California. He met every demand that was placed on him by 50 governors.

To sit there every night and get abused by the media with their gotcha questions. But he gives it right back to them and that’s one of the things we love about him. Just think of any elected offi cial that could do a better job then him right now. Show your support for him and vote for him in the Presidential Preference Primary on June 2.

I will be announcing soon where you will be able to pick up rally signs and bumper stickers once our committee meets again. When you really think about this situation, it’s really World War III where you have 184 countries fighting the same enemy. And like we did in World Wars I and II, American has stepped up and taken the lead. We should praise him, just as we did President Dwight Eisenhower in World War II. Our hospital crisis was like a D-Day landing. And our Commander in Chief has liberated the hospitals.

Also, when you vote for the President on June 2, I will be on the ballot as a state wide delegate candidate, and my wife Debra will be on their for the 2nd District and we humbly ask for your vote.

We would like to go to the convention to represent Rhode Island. Thank you and stay safe. The problem I am having right now is that I cannot stay six feet away from the refrigerator.
