Hi, I'm Zach


Hello, I'm Zach. I'm eighteen years old, and I am the youngest candidate to run for Rhode Island Governor. I've lived in Rhode Island for almost half of my life, and I have great pride in this state and what it could become. I'm currently in the University of Rhode Island Class of 2026, where I am majoring in International Studies and Diplomacy.

What I Stand For

The divide in our state between parties has grown to unprecedented proportions. We can see this in our schools, in our workplaces, and in our government. My hope is that as an Independent, I can work across party lines and bring more unity to our great state. I may be the youngest candidate running for office, but I believe that my youth can bring vitality to our government, to help make this state more beautiful than ever.


The Younger Generation

For generations, young people have always made a difference in our country. Whether that be for social or cultural change, they have used the freedoms given to them to make the world a better place. I believe our current generation can do the same for politics. That we can bridge the gap that has made the current political landscape so toxic. Which is why, at the age of eighteen years old, I, Zach Hurwitz, am officially announcing my campaign for Rhode Island Governor. I hope to tackle tough subjects such as food insecurity, the loss of small businesses within our state, the opioid epidemic, tourism, and infrastructure. If elected, I hope to change Rhode Island for the better, to make this state an even more beautiful place to live. Thank you, and I hope to see you at the polls in November.
