Gayle Goldin represents the East Side/Fox Point neighborhood of Providence. As a newly elected senator, Gayle championed the passage of Temporary Caregiver Insurance, making Rhode Island the third state in the country to create paid family leave and the first to do so with job protection. She continues to focus on common-sense legislation to grow our middle class, such as making child care more affordable, expanding the Earned Income Tax Credit, raising the minimum wage, improving our health care system, protecting reproductive and civil rights, and increasing funding for affordable housing and our public schools. Gayle is also a long-time advocate for children in foster care.
Gayle currently serves as the Deputy Majority Whip of the Senate, as Vice Chair of Senate Health & Human Services and is a member of the Senate Labor Committee. She co-chaired the RI Democratic Party Women’s Caucus.
