1/5/2021 Sen. Mack sworn in as General Assembly convenes
STATE HOUSE – Sen. Tiara Mack (D-Dist 6, Providence) was formally sworn into office on Tuesday, January 5, as the 2021-22 session of the Rhode Island General Assembly convened. 
Senator Mack was one of eight new members of the Rhode Island Senate who took the oath of office, which was administered to all Senate members by Rhode Island’s Secretary of State, Nellie Gorbea.

The Senate began its legislative year with the re-election of Sen. Dominick J. Ruggerio (D-Dist. 4, North Providence, Providence) as President of the Senate. Elected to the post in March 2017, President Ruggerio began his second full two-year term today with an address to the Senate members and other assembled officials and guests.  The session was held at Sapinsley Hall at Rhode Island College due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

A 2016 graduate of Brown University, she is currently a Youth Organizing Specialist at Planned Parenthood of Southern New England.  Senator Mack is also board member of the East Side/Mount Hope YMCA and serves on the Women’s Health and Education Fund.
