Leader Morgan Receives Friend of Government Accountability Award
STATE HOUSE – House Minority Leader Patricia Morgan (R-District 26 W. Warwick, Coventry) was honored to receive the Friend of Government Accountability Award from the Foundation for Government Accountability in recognition of her work in sponsoring legislation that promotes better lives for individuals and families in Rhode Island.
“I am proud to receive this award because of what it represents,” Rep. Morgan stated. “I have fought hard to root out corruption and waste in Rhode Island no matter where it tries to hide.”
Rep. Morgan was crucial in uncovering the unethical practices of disgraced Rhode Island House Finance Chairman Ray Gallison, the former House Finance Chairman convicted of financial crimes. She has also been relentless in her pursuit of answers regarding the RI Convention Center Authority, RI Dept. of Transportation, the Governor’s high volume hiring practices, the UHIP debacle and the collapse of 38 Studios.
“Whether raising the alarm over budget shortfalls on the floor of the House, submitting Access to Public Records requests or asking tough questions on state spending, I will do my part to keep our state government honest no matter the costs,” said Rep. Morgan. “I will fight to make our government accountable to hardworking taxpayers.”
