Letter: Sheehan Thanks His Supporters

Sen. James Sheehan, who retained his seat for a 6th term, thanks his supporters.

Dear editor, 

I wish to thank all of the voters who supported me in my re-election to the Rhode Island State Senate.  I appreciate the vote of confidence and will affirm that confidence by again rolling-up my sleeves and taking-on the tough issues that face our state.  

Specifically, I will continue to focus on making our state government perform more efficiently and effectively; help our workers get the job skills they need to succeed: and continue to work to improve our state’s overall business climate.  

I also wish to thank all those who placed signs on their lawns; walked door-to-door; worked the polls or simply passed along a kind word or two about my candidacy to a friend or neighbor.  Again, I thank you for the honor and privilege to serve the great communities of North Kingstown and Narragansett. 

Very sincerely,

With over 70,000 ballots in this state marked with only one mark for "master lever" for the Democrats, this is the main reason why this guy won. As long as this feature still exists on ballots, the elections in this state will continue to be hyjacked. The Democrats play this state like a fine violin and the voters pay and pay. Someday, they will wake up and force this mechanism to removed from the ballot to allow fair and individual elections of the people running for office. In the meantime, qualified people will continue to see this system for what it is, corrupted, and will stay away from it. Our founding fathers are rolling in their graves with the way our country is being bled to death by this Democrat Party. Perhaps the real security threat to this great nation is the Democratic Party - they want to bankrupt it.

I disagree with the two aforementioned sentiments.
