Voices of Providence. (Politics).
State representative David Cicilline, the openly gay mayoral candidate, said he had never heard of Voices 4 Equality before it threw its support behind his opponent, former mayor Joseph Paolino Jr. "I'm active in my community," said Cicilline, who is a former president of the board of directors for AIDS Project Rhode Island. "But I don't really know anything about this group."
Voices 4 Equality formed just two weeks prior to the endorsement, leading some community leaders to suggest that the group was formed solely to endorse Paolino. But Voices spokesman Garith Fulham denied that charge. "The group met with Joe [Paolino], and it was just clear to us that he was more supportive of our community than any other candidate," he said.
