WASHINGTON — Democrat Sam Zurier won his election to Rhode Island SD-3, helping to maintain Democrats’ dominance in the state Senate.

“As a public school parent, Sam Zurier has seen firsthand the gaps facing students in the public school system,” said Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee President Jessica Post. “That’s why Senator-elect Zurier dedicated his campaign to sharing his vision for strengthening Rhode Island public schools by increasing funding and accountability. Congratulations to Senator-elect Sam Zurier; I am confident that he is ready to get to work from day one in the legislature advocating for public school students, parents, and teachers.”
Raised in East Providence, Senator-elect Sam Zurier pursued a career in public service with a long-held focus on education, serving on the Providence School Board, the Providence City Council, and the East Side Public Education Coalition.
