Michelle McGaw

For House District 71 

Michelle McGaw is a graduate of the University of Rhode Island College of Pharmacy where she met her husband Jim. They have made Portsmouth their home since 1991, raising two sons, Jake and Max.  In recent years she has been focused on becoming more involved in RI politics and finding ways to make the RI of the future a better place for our families to thrive.

She is currently a member of the Portsmouth Democratic Town Committee, the Portsmouth Solid Waste and Recycling Committee, the Portsmouth Charter Review Committee and serves on the board for the RI Democratic Women’s caucus.

“As an advocate fighting for issues like women’s health and protecting our environment, I have seen the barriers to progress and suppression of the voices of voters.  I am running for office because I want to provide representation that works proactively to protect our communities and our families.”
