Believe in Providence.
I love Providence. It’s part of who I am. I was born here and became a community organizer on the South Side as a teenager. In 1999, my wife, Francis, and I purchased and restored our first home in Washington Park, where we raised our two kids. Today, we live on Mount Pleasant Avenue.
Over the past three decades, I have fought for the people of Providence. I’ve been a community organizer and nonprofit leader, run a small business on Broad Street, and worked at the highest levels of city and state government to improve people’s lives. In short, I have experienced Providence’s many opportunities and challenges first-hand.
Providence needs a mayor who speaks from their own lived experience and understands that we can be a dynamic, safe, and clean city with a thriving middle class. A mayor who leads with vision, determination, and empathy. One who knows how to bring people together to get things done.
Together, we can build a Providence where equity, justice, and opportunity inform everything that we do, from fixing potholes to making our streets safer to creating affordable housing and lifting thousands of families into the middle class.
A Providence you can believe in.
My name is Gonzalo Cuervo, and I am running for Mayor of Providence.
Gun Sense Candidate
The Gun Sense Candidate distinction is not an endorsement from Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America or Everytown for Gun Safety Action Fund. It is a signal to our supporters, volunteers and voters across the country that a candidate advocates for gun violence prevention and will govern with gun safety in mind, if elected.
