Moniz launches write-in campaign for District 49

WOONSOCKET - Michael Moniz has announced that he will be running for the House seat representing District 49 in the state General Assembly as a write-in candidate for the election to be held Feb. 25.

"If I should win on Feb. 25, I will be working with Mayor Lisa Baldelli-Hunt to help her in any way," said Moniz. "I want to be the people's voice in the Statehouse."

Moniz said one of his priorities for the upcoming session would be creating a holiday to honor Elvis Presley and creating a tax-free holiday.

Democratic Primary victor Michael Morin is the only name that will appear on the ballot, since there were no declared Republican or independent candidates for the seat.
