DaSilva clarifies misunderstanding of similar candidate names

DaSilva clarifies misunderstanding of similar candidate names

Once again it is election time in North Providence and I would like to clear up some apparent confusion. Lately, in various social settings and governmental functions, it has come to my attention that members of the public think that a certain candidate running for the open District Two School Committee seat with the last name DaSilva is somehow related to me. That is not the case.

I would like to express my complete support for Charles “Chuck” Pollock, who is also running for the open North Providence District Two School Committee seat in the Democratic Primary on Sept. 12. Charles will be a great asset on the School Committee and will bring expertise to the area of public safety. I know Charles Pollock to be a reasoned, thoughtful and responsive individual and he will represent children and their families as well as all residents with honor and integrity.

Thank you for the opportunity to clarify this unique political circumstance with respect to my last name.

Roderick DaSilva

North Providence

DaSilva is the current Dist. 2 School Committee member
