At our first meeting of the semester, January 20th, we will be joined by the Rhode Island Senate Majority Leader and PC graduate Teresa Paiva-Weed!



From the Senator's website:
"M. Teresa Paiva Weed (D – District 13, Jamestown, Newport) was first elected to the Rhode Island Senate in 1992. In January 2004, Senator Paiva Weed was unanimously elected by her Democratic colleagues to serve as Senate Majority Leader. Leader Paiva Weed is the first woman in Rhode Island’s history to serve in this capacity. She served as Vice Chairwoman of the Senate Finance Committee from 2002 through 2004, when she was elected Majority Leader. From 2000 to 2002, she served as Deputy Chair of the Finance Subcommittee on Public Safety and the Environment. From 1996 through 2000, she served as the Senate’s first woman Chair of the Judiciary Committee. During her tenure in the Senate she has won passage of many landmark bills, such as the Family Independence Act, and legislation restructuring the Victim’s Compensation Fund. In addition, she has been recognized by the Governor’s Council on Disabilities, the National Association of Social Workers, the Center for Hispanic Policy and Advocacy and the Newport County NAACP for her legislative efforts. As Majority Leader, Senator Paiva Weed is an ex officio member of all Senate Committees. She is responsible for running the Senate floor and leading her Democratic colleagues. Majority Leader Paiva Weed, 44, has also served on the Labor Committee (1993 – 2004.)"
