1/17/2017 Minority Leader Morgan to offer response to Governor Gina Raimondo’s State of the State Address
STATE HOUSE  --  At the conclusion of Governor Raimondo’s State of the State address at the Rhode Island state house this evening, Minority Leader Patricia Morgan (R-District 26 Coventry, Warwick, West Warwick) will offer her official response in the House Lounge.
 
“Our state is in critical condition and my sole interest is in protecting the everyday Rhode Islander,” said Minority Leader Patricia Morgan. 
 
Representative Morgan went on to say, “Too often in Rhode Island, we’ve seen lobbyists, lawyers, big corporations and millionaires receive the lion’s share of tax breaks and incentives, all to the detriment of hardworking taxpayers.  It cannot continue.” 
 
“I hear it in the voices of many Rhode Islanders when I speak with them about the state of our state.  They are scared.  They are scared about losing jobs, paying their bills, and the opportunity for their children and grandchildren in our state.  Our state government needs to work together.  From the Governor’s office, to the General Assembly, to leaders in our cities and towns, we must put the average Rhode Islander first, if we are to be successful.”
