ABOUT REP. GEORGE A NARDONE
George A. Nardone was first elected to the House of Representatives in 2018, and then re-elected in 2020, by the residents of Coventry, living within District 28. He sits on two standing House Committees: Finance (considers all propositions relative to the revenue, to inquire into the state of the public debt and to report from time to time their opinion on such propositions for expediency) and State Government and Elections (addresses legislation pertinent to core government services and election matters).
As a small business owner for the past 26 years, Nardone experienced first-hand the ever-expanding list of burdens imposed on Rhode Island businesses by current policies at the State House. As a freshman legislator in 2019, Nardone sponsored legislation to reduce the state sales tax; successfully championed government transparency through online posting of the Governor’s Executive Orders; and authored an amendment to the medical marijuana bill which addressed an unintended consequence in administering this prescribed treatment to school age children. Nardone promotes ethics reforms, reducing business regulations, repealing the trucking tolls and supports authorizing a Governor’s line-item veto. He is a watchdog for effective government and fights against bills that support special interest programs and policies on the taxpayer’s dime.
During the 2020/21 legislative sessions, the Republican Caucus moved the needle on a number of important state government issues on behalf of Rhode Island’s hardworking taxpayers.

Nardone worked three years as a furniture upholsterer at the DJM Company in Pawtucket before owning and operating his own upholstery business, Castle Gate Inc. in West Warwick. He is a member of the Coventry Republican Committee, the National Republican Committee, and Toast Masters International. He was actively involved in the Coventry Girls Softball League coaching T-ball to fast pitch.
Nardone, a life-long Rhode Islander, resides in the Town of Coventry with his wife Dawn (Urquhart) and his daughter, Nicole.
2019 RI FREEDOM INDEX LEGISLATOR SCORECARD
The 2019 Freedom Index was created by the RI Center for Freedom & Prosperity. The Freedom Index examines a legislator's voting record in terms of their likely effect on the free market, the size and scope of government, the balance of residents' interests against those of public employees and beneficiaries, and the constitutional structure of government over the people it represents. In the Rhode Island General Assembly, 95 pieces of legislation were analyzed from the 2019 legislative session. The membership of the House Republican Caucus ranked in the top fifteen of Rhode Island General Assembly legislators (there are 110) who consistently vote for liberty in the State of Rhode Island.
