Potential gubernatorial candidate Clay Pell has filed a Notice of Organization for an Exploratory Committee with the Board of Elections, he announced Monday.

"The filing is a practical step in my process to decide whether I will seek the Democratic nomination for governor," stated Pell.

Pell also stated, "We face enormous challenges. Too many Rhode Islanders have been left out and left behind. I believe our state is at a crossroads, and that the next governor must set a new course that will give the people of Rhode Island a fair chance for a brighter, bolder future. In the weeks ahead, I will continue this process by meeting with people across Rhode Island to listen to their concerns."

Pell is an attorney and Coast Guard reserve officer who has worked at the White House and at the U.S. Department of Education. He is also the grandson of late U.S. Senator Claiborne Pell.
