Re-Elect Dawn Euer for State Senate District 13 | Jamestown - Newport
"I am deeply committed to public service and this community. With your support, I will continue to bring the voices of Jamestown and Newport residents to the State House. I humbly ask for your vote on September 12.”
Dawn Euer, Senator for District 13
Committed to Jobs and the Economy
As an attorney who works with small businesses, Dawn knows that we can do more to support economic growth and job creation in our communities. Dawn is working to increase access to capital for our local businesses, streamline the regulatory framework, and invest in job training to ensure our workers have the skills they need to succeed.
Committed to Government Accountability and Transparency
Dawn is an independent thinker who believes that we make the best decisions when we make those decisions together. Creative and effective solutions to our state’s challenges come from bringing all stakeholders to the table, listening, engaging and finding common ground for Newport, Jamestown and Rhode Island. Since being elected, Dawn has held several community meetings to ensure the voices of District 13 residents are represented at the State House. Additionally, she is the lead sponsor of Common Cause's legislation to create an independent citizen redistricting commission. She is also a co-sponsor of line-item veto legislation.
Committed to the Environment
Newport and Jamestown are already feeling the effects of climate change. Dawn is committed to supporting renewable energy development, energy efficiency projects, green infrastructure and proper planning that helps small businesses and residents recover more quickly from coastal flooding and storms. In her first term, Dawn introduced legislation opposing dangerous off-shore drilling along our coasts and shorelines, opposed the expansion of carbon-based energy sources, and championed renewable energy efforts.
Committed to Seniors
Dawn is working hard to ensure our older citizens are getting the care they deserve. She knows it's important they have access to information about support programs and services, public transportation that is professional and reliable, and policies that help people stay in their homes as they age. Dawn has co-sponsored legislation aimed at saving medicaid dollars which would allow consumers to hire and manage the caregivers of their choice.
Dawn comes from a working-class family and learned from an early age that the best way to get ahead in life is with hard work and perseverance. She worked her way through college, earned her degree, and moved to RI for law school to fulfill her dream of being able to empower people to make our communities stronger. Dawn fell in love with Newport and immediately got involved in the community as a proud Newporter-by-choice. Dawn owns a successful law firm with a focus on supporting social entrepreneurs and small businesses as well as non-profits that focus on grassroots mobilization. She was a leader in the fight for marriage equality and ushered through the historic piece of legislation that allows all loving couples the right to marry, regardless of gender. Dawn also has a record of fighting against corruption in government. Most recently, she represented petitioners who successfully worked to recall a Providence City Councilman. Dawn isn't afraid to stand up against the political machine and fight for what she believes in. In the summer of 2017, Dawn successfully ran for state senate in a special election and took the oath of office September 5, 2017.
“We must invest in public education if we want our kids to succeed. We must ensure that our schools are properly maintained and that our students are in buildings that are conducive to learning. I am committed to making sure our district is well represented and will work to make sure that the funding formula is fair and equitable.”
“I will work hard to ensure our senior citizens are getting the care they deserve. I know how important it is to have access to information about support programs and services, public transportation that is professional and reliable, and policies that will help them stay in their homes as they age.”
