Lifelong resident of Westerly RI and 8 term Westerly Town Council member, Caswell Cooke Jr. is running for State Senate District 38 for Westerly, Charlestown and South Kingstown. Caswell Cooke is aware of how far behind Rhode Island is in terms of small business growth, Infrastructure improvements, and education. Caswell Cooke is running as an independent candidate because he believes that we need to work together to solve the problems in Rhode Island. Voting against a bill because it was produced by one particular party, if it is a good bill, is just plain wrong to Caswell Cooke. He has a great relationship with both parties and plans on being a great mediator between the two.
