I stopped by the Cumberland Library last night with my daughter Hannah to visit with our new U.S. Representative, David Cicilline. Although Hannah only wanted to stay for about 10 minutes, it was still a nice opportunity to see Rep. Cicilline in action – in this case, talking to a group of citizens about Social Security.
I’m happy to report that Rep. Cicilline strongly supports the arts and the federal government’s role in advancing the cause of the arts. We are, in fact, lucky that our entire Congressional delegation is made up of wonderful arts supporters: we are the envy of the nation in that regard!
Rep. Cicilline has assembled a strong district office team, and I encourage members of the arts community to be in contact with them, and to let Rep. Cicilline know about any concerns you might have regarding the arts at the federal and state level. For contact and other information you can visit his website at http://cicilline.house.gov/
