COVENTRYâA local resident and funeral director has announced his candidacy for the District 28 Representative seat after deciding to take a stand and promote change in the community.
Robert âBobbyâ Nardolillo III, of Coventry, is a fourth generation funeral director, whose family owns Nardolillo Funeral Home in Cranston and Narragansett.
He graduated from the LaSalle Military Academy in New York with honors and the Officerâs rank of 1st Lt.
Having lived in Cranston most his life, Nardolillo moved to Coventry six years ago to raise his two children, Rocco and Milania.
âI live in the Greene section of Coventry,â he said. âWhile weâre out here Iâve gotten a very good feeling of our neighbors and issues.â
Although he loves living in Coventry, he said things are beginning to change for the worst and neighbors and taxpayers are getting frustrated.
While the seat Nardolillo is running for is held by Representative Scott Guthrie, who recently had issues with Senator Nick Kettle regarding a fake Facebook page, he said his decision to run had nothing to do with that turmoil.
âI had prepared conversation with my Republican Town Committee in late October,â he explained. âI woke up one morning and said to my wife âI really want to put myself out there and help my people in the community.â So all of this that occurred between the two of them [Guthrie and Kettle] months later, had nothing to do with it.â
