EDGARTOWN — Republican congressional candidate Peter Tedeschi toured the Vineyard and outlined his platform at the Old Whaling Church in Edgartown Saturday.

Mr. Tedeschi is running against four-term incumbent Bill Keating to represent the ninth Congressional district that includes the south shore and Cape and Islands.

He is the former chief executive officer Tedeschi Food Shops, a convenience store chain that his family started when they immigrated to the Massachusetts south shore from Italy just after 1900. He lives in Norwell with his wife and three children.

The trip to the Island was part of his campaign’s People’s First Tour, where he plans to meet with constituents in the district’s 46 towns.
