    First political ad I find “adorable” (and effective at the same time). And not just for the gay bit, although it’s refreshing that it’s so natural.

    Charming, thoughtful, and sounds like he would make a great Mayor. And good for him for showing his husband in the ad! People need to see this.

    This guy is hilarious and I would totally vote for him if I lived in his town. It would be like voting for Leslie Knope. And as a bonus, his husband seems super-cool. Providence couldn’t ask for a better first couple.

    I live in Providence and to be honest this seems like a corny crappy apple video explaining the new iPhone. I don’t know I’m not taking him seriously in this campaign ad.In this moment in time I will have to say I pass.

    To Jackster and Juan: I’m a Rhode Island native who now lives in San Francisco, and while I have to agree that Providence is not the SF of the northeast (lol), it IS a surprisingly progressive and cosmopolitan city for its size. I’d compare it more to a mini-Portland in some regards… good restaurants, fairly good gay scene (in some ways a better one than Boston, though that’s not saying much), great architecture, etc. Rhode Island has its problems, especially economically, but Providence is kind of a hidden gem.
