State Representative Helder Cunha, District 64 in East Providence issued a press release this morning in which he announces that he will not be a candidate for reelection to his House seat. Cunha had previously been a member of the East Providence City Council from Ward Two.
“It is with a heavy heart that I am announcing I will not be seeking re-election for the District 64 seat. I am honored to have had the opportunity to represent the residents of East Providence both in the General Assembly as well as on the City Council. It has been six years since I first ran for office. Throughout those years I have learned so much about our community and have made many lasting friendships. However right now, I have to step aside and focus on my family.
“I am also announcing that I am endorsing Joe Serodio for State Representative District 64. He is someone that will represent District 64 with dedication, passion, and energy. With over 40 years of business experience and an outstanding reputation, his acumen and entrepreneurship is what our City and State needs more than ever. He will be a great voice and effective leader for the people of District 64.
“Although I am leaving my elected position, I do still plan on remaining active in our community. Any resident should feel free to reach out to me on issues they may have with our State and City at any time.”
