Providence City Council Member Nirva LaFortune has waded into the broader phase of the 2022 Providence, Rhode Island Mayoral Campaign with gusto, issuing a video which evokes the broader themes of her candidacy.

From The Nirva LaFortune Mayoral Campaign:

Today, Team Nirva is releasing a new campaign video “Running: For Our City, Our Future.”

As a runner, Councilwoman Nirva LaFortune makes it a point to go into every neighborhood in the City of Providence – on her own two feet. As she runs, she sees opportunities for mixed-use development, sites for affordable housing, and spaces for our children and families to play, grow, and thrive in safe communities.

As a candidate for Mayor, Nirva looks forward to meeting voters where they are – on their doorsteps, at community events, and even digitally.

The fight for a better Providence, the fight for Our City, Our Future, is a critical effort. To build a City where all families and children can thrive, we need a Mayor who understands the challenges that our city and our working families face.

Nirva is the mother of Providence Public School children, a graduate of the district herself. She is a formerly undocumented immigrant and a higher education administrator. She is a City Councilwoman. And she is an experienced and bold leader with the vision to be the first woman, first Black Mayor of Providence.

She has the experience necessary to take on our city’s most challenging issues: underperforming schools, long-term financial challenges, rising costs of living and housing, and violence in our communities.

As Mayor, Nirva will take a practical and sustainable approach to these issues with integrity, courage, and strength.
