Whitehouse Comes to Dinner: Chariho Hosts Roundtable with Democratic Senator

RICHMOND — Residents, state officials and local government officials from Charlestown, Richmond, Hopkinton and Westerly gathered at Chariho High School Wednesday evening to eat pasta and meatballs and pose their questions to Rhode Island’s junior senator, Democrat Sheldon Whitehouse.

About 80 people attended the community dinner, an informal event that Whitehouse has held often throughout the state.

“I will speak very, very briefly, and then we’ll go to questions and answers,” Whitehouse told the audience. “If you have a question or a comment, or rude remarks — we take it all, this is Rhode Island — just put your hand up and we’ll get a microphone to you.”
