Thank  you for visiting Elect Ken RI and we will be updating the site to reflect the 2020 campaign.

Dear Visitor:


I am seeking reelection to the House District 72 seat (Portsmouth/ Middletown) to continue the effort of representing the needs of my constituents, while working hard for the taxpayer ensuring they get the most from their hard earned money by state government.  In my term as a state representative, I served on the House Committee on Finance, and sub committees on General Government and Environment and Transportation.  While on these committees, I invested hundreds of hours at the state house learning the details about the budgeting, operation and expenditure processes of state government.  I asked questions in the best interest of the taxpayer, politics aside, to the administration, general office holders and the departments to hold them accountable.  I also heard testimony on over 750 pieces of legislation.  The video proof is available below and more will be forthcoming. Putting the time in on committees is critical to making informed votes on the house floor where legislation becomes law. By participating on the finance committee, l learned not only how the sausage was made, but how it was going to be paid for.   I was also honored to serve on Committee for Veteran Affairs and to represent the many veterans in the district.

I look forward to hearing from you and I respectfully ask for your support and vote,


Ken Mendonça
