My Lunch with Langevin initiative has quickly become one of my favorite events to host. I am able to speak with my constituents one-on-one in an informal setting and bring their concerns, thoughts and feedback back with me to Washington, D.C. The latest Lunch with Langevin at The Breachway Grill in Charlestown was a great success, with over 60 people taking time out of their summer weekend to visit with me.
The lunch started with Girl Scout Troop 560 of Matunuck, who gave an enlightening presentation about the dangers of pollution and the effect it has on wildlife, specifically in Rhode Island waters. These girl scouts are a great example that it’s never too early to become civically engaged.
While making my rounds at the lunch, I spoke with my constituents about several issues, including climate change, healthcare, and gun control. I always appreciate the opportunity to take questions and discuss important topics, and it means a lot that so many Rhode Islanders were willing to join me on a warm summer day in June.
Thank you all who participated in my 11th Lunch with Langevin and to The Breachway Grill for hosting us. I hope to see new and familiar faces at a future Lunch with Langevin! Stay tuned for details on my next lunch.
