Pulse of Providence: Jose Batista, candidate for House District 12

Pulse of Providence

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — The only seat in Providence’s General Assembly delegation without an incumbent running this fall is House District 12 in South Providence.

Incumbent Rep. Joseph Almeida initially filed to run for re-election, but withdrew from the race and endorsed Democrat Carlos Cedeno.

Cedeno and Jose Batista are facing off in a two-way Democratic primary on Sept. 8. There are no Republicans or independents running in the race.

In this episode of Pulse of Providence, Steph Machado talks with Jose Batista about his candidacy, his role as the executive director of the Providence External Review Authority and what he will do if elected to the House of Representatives.

Despite numerous requests, Carlos Cedeno did not agree to be interviewed for this episode.
