The headlines in this morning's Providence Journal make it clear just how awful things have become because the state elected one of the worst if not the worst Governor ever. Don Carcieri's stewardship of the state was really never rated as "good" or even "passable." Now however, there is clear evidence that the Governor who touted his business experience as a manager for voting Republican in the last two elections for governor, has failed the state and its citizens miserably. By any metrics you might choose, under Carcieri, the state, its economy, its quality of life for citizens is in a free fall.
The proposed solution now is to sell the state's assessts to private investors thereby insuring not only that the present will be awful, but the future prospects of the state as well. Time to dump Carcieri. We can't stand another 3 years of this man.
What will he do next? Sell off the University of Rhode Island?
Its time the democrats in the legislature stepped forward to stop Carcieri ... from destroying our present and our future. One solution might be to sell off certain rights as other states have done to save their economies. We should be looking in that direction. There are ways to do it...I just don't trust Carcieri to make the right decision. He doesn't have the best track record, lol.
