Picard seeks re-election to Senate District 20

WOONSOCKET – Roger Picard has announced his re-election bid for state Senate District 20, serving Cumberland and Woonsocket. Picard is a lifelong resident of Woonsocket, and his wife, Diane, is originally from Cumberland. He was first elected to the Rhode Island Senate in 2008 and previously served in the Rhode Island House of Representatives.

“It has been an absolute honor serving the people of District 20,” Picard said. “I have had the pleasure of speaking to a multitude of residences in District 20 about their thoughts and perspectives regarding the creation of public policy as well as life events in general.”

Picard said he looks forward to discussing public policy concerns related to education, business, environment, health care, child care, senior care and other topics with his constituents. He is a social worker for the Woonsocket School Department and a graduate of Rhode Island College and the University of Rhode Island.

“I am grateful for your support in the past, and I am asking for it once again in November,” he said. “In the mean time, feel free to call me at my home or stop by and visit, like so many have done before, to let me know your thoughts on the upcoming election or any other topic. I look forward to hearing from you and working with you again in the future.”
