The East Greenwich Republican Town Committee this week became the tenth local GOP organization to endorse Cranston Mayor Allan Fung for Governor.
“Our Committee made a very deliberate decision in endorsing Allan Fung,” said Chuck Newton, EG GOP Town Committee chair.
“Both Ken Block and Allan Fung had appeared before our group, made their case, and responded to our questions. And on Thursday evening, there was a spirited discussion prior to the vote.
“In the end, the Committee felt that Fung’s experience and track record as Cranston Mayor, and his consistent record as a Republican were distinguishing characteristics that set him apart and deserved our support,” Newton said.
The committee also voted endorsements for “favorite sons” Dawson Hodgson for Attorney General, Anthony Giarrusso for a second term as State Representative, and Mark Gee, an East Greenwich Town Councilor running to fill Hodgson’s vacancy in the State Senate.
