John Howell, Warwick Beacon

Joy Fox was knocking on doors Saturday in her campaign to win the Second Congressional District seat. She wasn’t asking for money, something her campaign could use.  Rather, she was reminding those she met of the Democratic primary September 13 and inviting them to join her campaign.

She had two converts with her, Katie and Ryan Hall who live in the Norwood section of Warwick. Katie met Fox at the Providence St. Patrick’s Day parade and rapidly, as often happens in Rhode Island, established they had mutual friends and share interests. 

“She’s great. I appreciate that she’s from here (Rhode Island),” Katie said explaining she’s a Cumberland native. Fox grew up in Cranston and now lives in the Gaspee Plateau section of Warwick. She is no stranger to Ocean State politics and government although this is her first bid for public office. Fox was a reporter than editor of the Cranston Herald before working as the communications director for Congressman James Langevin to be followed in a similar position for then state Treasurer Gina Raimondo and then Governor Raimondo.  She is now the co-owner of Clarendon Group, a communications firm.
