1/5/2021 Sen. Calkin sworn in as General Assembly convenes
STATE HOUSE —Sen. Jeanine Calkin was formally sworn into office Tuesday, Jan. 5, as the 2021-22 session of the Rhode Island General Assembly convened.

Senator Calkin (D-Dist. 30, Warwick) was one of eight new members of the Senate who took the oath of office, which was administered to all 38 Senate members by Rhode Island Secretary of State Nellie Gorbea.

The Senate began its legislative year today meeting at Sapinsley Hall at Rhode Island College in Providence to provide greater social distance than is possible at the State House, which is closed to the public during the pandemic.

Senator Calkin is returning to the Senate, having previously represented District 30 from 2017 to 2018. She is a project manager at the nonprofit coalition Renew New England Alliance. She holds a master’s degree in information systems from Bryant University and bachelor’s in information science from Johnson & Wales University.
