(4.15) House Reps Edith Ajello (D-Providence) and Teresa Tanzi (D-South Kingstown) will be holding a joint fundraiser Wednesday evening at Ogie’s Trailer Park. This will follow two days of testimony before the House Judiciary Committee regarding proposed gun-control legislation (which they support). I think it’s safe to say everyone will need a drink by then.
Disclosure: Ajello is my rep and I have never once had to write her a strongly worded letter. She’s already on the right side of everything — really saves time. I have worked with Ajello through my own advocacy as a speaker for Law Enforcement Against Prohibition (LEAP). Ajello has been unflagging in her support of marijuana reform, sponsoring the legislation that has made possession of a small amount of marijuana a civil offense rather than a crime.
Fundraiser, 6pm to 8pm, Wednesday, April 15, Ogie’s Trailer Park, 1155 Westminster Street
