Cranston, R.I. (August 10, 2022) – The National Education Association Rhode Island Political Action Committee for Education (NEARI-PACE) voted to endorse Sabina Matos for Lieutenant Governor of the State of Rhode Island. “Sabina Matos understands the challenges facing working families in Rhode Island and our committee believes she is the right choice for Lt. Governor,” said Amy Mullen, NEARI-PACE Committee chairwoman. “Matos’ understanding of how her priorities for the office – especially affordable housing and broadband equity – intersect directly with the needs of our members and the students and public they serve was a driving factor in this endorsement. We may disagree on some issues, but the Lt. Governor demonstrates a willingness to engage in open and honest conversation to reach compromise. Communication and building a relationship are critical to our members’ voices being heard by state lawmakers and we look forward to working with the Lt. Governor on our shared priorities,” said NEARI President Larry Purtill.
