Ernie Almonte will run for General Treasurer of Rhode Island as an Independent not a Democrat.

Almonte filed papers to run as an Independent after campaigning for several months as a Democratic candidate.

“The role of an independent treasurer is essential to the fiscal and economic health of the state and the person who holds that office should be beholden to no one but the citizens he represents,” said Almonte.

Democrats Frank Caprio and Seth Magaziner have also declared their candidacies for the office.

The Republicans do not have a declared candidate.
