Fung spoke while attending a regional Republican National Committee meeting in Boston that ends today Friday.

“It’s about making sure that you’re there for them and to help them especially through their times of need, especially now when we’re talking about these very difficult times in the Northeast where it seems to be lagging behind many parts of the country,” said Fung.

Fung is expected to run for governor as a Republican next year.

Other Rhode Islanders at the RNC meeting in Boston include state party chairman Mark Smiley, national committeeman Steven Frias and national committeewoman Carol Mumford.
