Mariorenzi seeks at-large seat on School Committee

NORTH PROVIDENCE – Anthony J. Mariorenzi Jr., a Democrat, has declared his intent to run for an at-large seat on the North Providence School Committee.

Mariorenzi said he has decided to run, first, because of his firm belief in making school safety a top priority.

“If elected, I would work every day to further enhance school security across the town of North Providence,” he said.

Second, Mariorenzi pledges to work to help provide teachers with more resources that help students with social emotional learning, which he believes “will help students learn to regulate their emotions in a healthy way.”

“It is important that the well-being of our students is taken seriously. This also creates a safe and positive school community,” he continued.

He said his third reason for running is to “ensure the taxpayers of North Providence that any and all spending is being properly used to benefit the learning experience of each child in North Providence.”

Mariorenzi, 28, is a student at Rhode Island College in the technology studies program. He lives at 630 Smithfield Road with his fiancée Catherine Shabo. Mariorenzi told The Breeze he has been “motivated by the empowering younger generation across the country getting involved in politics.” He said, “I look forward to meeting my fellow citizens across the town of North Providence on the campaign trail.”
