Giroux Kicks Off Campaign For Governor

Todd Giroux officially announced Tuesday that he’s running for governor. Giroux declared he’d run as a democrat back in October.

Giroux is a 43-year-old Woonsocket native. He’s a general contractor who specializes in historic preservation. He ran for governor in 2010 as an independent.

Giroux said he’ll be a governor who listens and responds. “We need a governor that has a steady hand on the rudder of this state,” he said. “And if we provide a commerce fund, an infrastructure fund then we have the tools that support the jobs plan.”

Giroux faces Clay Pell, Treasurer Gina Raimondo and Providence mayor Angel Taveras in the democratic primary for governor.
