Reps. Edwards, Canario present legislative grant to Tiverton Veterans of Foreign Wars
State House — House Majority Whip John G. Edwards (D-Dist. 70, Portsmouth, Tiverton) and Rep. Dennis M. Canario (D-Dist. 71, Portsmouth, Tiverton, Little Compton) recently paid a visit to the Tiverton Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 5392, to present the post commander, Tony Lacerda, with a legislative grant of $5,000 to assist the post in replacing and updating an antiquated HVAC system.
“We are grateful for everything that our representatives have done on our behalf,” said Commander Lacerda. “We are long overdue in updating our heat and ac system with something more energy efficient, something that meets ‘green-energy’ standards and reduces our electricity costs. The grant will definitely help us out with the overall cost of replacement.”
