Rep. Jacquard gives $1,000 to Rep. Morgan’s effort to obtain AG documents about Google money
STATE HOUSE – Rep. Robert B. Jacquard (D-Dist. 17, Cranston) has announced he has given House Minority Leader Patricia L. Morgan (R-Dist. 26, West Warwick, Coventry, Warwick) a $1,000 check of his own personal money to assist her efforts in obtaining documents related to the spending of Google settlement money from the Office of the Attorney General.
“I spoke with Leader Morgan and pledged $1,000 of my own personal money to her efforts in obtaining documents related to the spending of Google settlement money from the Office of the Attorney General,” said Representative Jacquard.
“I am particularly appalled by the quote from Attorney General Kilmartin’s spokesperson that ‘Patty Morgan will not receive special treatment because she thinks she is more entitled than the average person.’ Representative Morgan is an Honorable person. She represents fourteen thousand constituents. She speaks for all of them. I call on Attorney General Kilmartin to apologize to her and her constituents for this callous treatment of an elected official.”
“I was a member of the House Finance Committee when former Representative Gallison shut Representative Morgan down. I regret not speaking up that day. I will not sit back and watch someone shut Representative Morgan down again. I also represent fourteen thousand constituents. I urge other candidates for office to support Representative Morgan on this matter,” concluded Representative Jacquard.
Representative Jacquard can be contacted on his cell phone, 401-419-9915, with any further questions.
