Meet the Candidates: Lt. Gov. Sabina Matos
PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WLNE) — ABC 6 News spoke with Democratic candidate for the 1st Congressional District special election, Lieutenant Governor Sabina Matos on Tuesday.
Acting Lt. Gov. for the state of Rhode Island and former President of Providence City Council, Matos said she believes voters should have a transparent idea of who the candidates running to represent them are and feel confident that they are acting honestly.
“Right now, when I’m out and about talking to voters — they’re not talking about signatures, they’re talking about the issues — I just came from a senior center and they’re concerned with social security here. They hear that Republicans want to eliminate social security and they’re scared about that. Those are the things that the voters care about.”
The special election for the 1st Congressional District seat to replace former Rep. David Cicilline will take place on Sept. 5.
