Sen. O'Neill will announce re-election bid on Monday

LINCOLN - State Sen. Ed O'Neill, who represents Lincoln, North Providence and North Smithfield, says he will announce plans to run for re-election at a reception in his honor at Spicoli's in Albion on Monday, June 9, at 6 p.m.

O'Neill is a member of the Senate Finance and Education Committees and secretary of the Government Oversight panel.

He is also co-chairman of the joint committee on Blended Learning and vice chair of the joint committee on improving opportunities for those with autism.

O'Neill says he continues to be "a champion of the middle class" and has been a supporter of ethics reform and ending the master lever. He is a co-sponsor of both bills in the Senate. His hit-and-run bill passed the Senate last week. "This is a major piece of legislation aimed at providing sharply increased penalties for leaving the scene of an accident with serious injury or death resulting," he noted.
