Campo to Run Against Costa for District 31 Seat

Democrat Steve Campo announces his bid for the General Assembly.

State Rep. Doreen Costa is going to have some competition for her seat in the General Assembly. Democrat Steve Campo recently announced his candidacy for District 31, representing North Kingstown and Exeter.

A local business owner (Campo created and operates Rhode Island Green – a landscape and general construction company based out of North Kingstown), he served on the North Kingstown Town Council from 2006 to 2008 and was on the board of the directors for Quonset Development Corporation during the same time. Since 2007, Campo has worked at Bryant University as an adjunct professor of business.

On Saturday, Campo announced his candidacy and spoke of his time on the council, where he "worked hard to maintain a fair tax rate for North Kingstown as well as balancing the needs of the community."

"I will continue to be a fiscal watchdog for North Kingstown and Exeter while at the same tie making sure that we don't sacrifice the quality of services that we deliver to our citizens," said Campo.

Campo added, "I will give you a straight answer, regardless of political consequences. You all know me as a fighter and I will continue to fight for the towns of North Kingstown and Exeter because I can be more effective on your behalf than the present representative."

Campo will be facing off against incumbent Republican Doreen Costa, who ousted longtime state representative Ken Carter in 2010 in a surprise victory. Carter had held his District 31 seat for 18 years.

There are 2 individuals who are on a mission to trash Representative Costa no matter what. They will never stop and it will never end. This is what you are observing here., nothing more. They can use all of the names they want, but if the web master of this site checks you will see their IP address over and over under more than one name.

Those coming up with some fantastic FICTIONAL stories regarding Steve Campo, should best invest their time into writting for Law and Order or Warner Bros. My view is this you want to put something out there GET ALL THE DARN FACTS ALL OF THEM not just those parts you think you understand (which from what I read most couldn't win on ARE YOU SMARTER THAN A 5th GRADER) or that best fit your underhanded agenda! A word to the not so bright, be careful of what you write as you may be breaking some laws and could end up with a mess of legal issues of your own.
