She successfully managed a number of statewide referendum issues including the 2012 Expansion at Twin River, $50 Million Bond Campaign for Rhode Island College, $30 Million Bond Issue for Roger Williams Park Zoo and Save Our State, a coordinated campaign to defeat a proposed Harrah’s Casino. All of the above mentioned campaigns required significant stakeholder relations management, media relations and crisis communications.
More recently, Patti engineered the successful statewide referendum to support the siting of a Twin River casino in the town of Tiverton, Rhode Island. To do so, she managed a highly coordinated grassroots and grasstops campaign, aided by the full spectrum of public relations and marketing tools including a campaign web site, dedicated social media channels, near daily press interaction and broad based advertising.
Patti is the recipient of numerous Publicity Club of New England Bell Ringer awards which recognize excellence in public relations and she is also the recipient of a Silver Anvil as bestowed by the national Public Relations Society of America.
