McKee reception, fundraiser is Monday

CUMBERLAND – Friends of Dan McKee will hold a reception on Monday, Sept. 18, to honor the former local mayor who was elected lieutenant governor in 2014. The event will be held at Cumberland House of Pizza, 2360 Mendon Road, from 6 to 9 p.m.

McKee will address his supporters, highlighting the initiatives of the lieutenant governor’s office during his first term. Such initiatives include Empower RI, an energy-shopping website McKee helped launch in 2015 that currently allows ratepayers to circumvent National Grid’s electric rate increase.

McKee will describe his efforts in long-term health care, and his support of veterans and their families through the R.I. Military Relief Fund. He will also update the crowd on the status of his bold 39 cities and towns tour aimed at uncovering and addressing small business issues across the state.
