|Den of thieves|
As we wind down 2013, Rhode Island does not have a lot to cheer about. Unemployment remains the biggest problem, with the highest in New England and second highest in the country. Where is the leadership? There is no urgency to fix the problem as leaders seem more focused on " social issues" as opposed to a plan of true economic development. Corruption, an uneducated work force, and high taxes remain the dominant image of the state to the outside. The state has become a magnet for outsiders in need of government assistance, and the demand on state services increasing. In 2014, Rhode Island is in desperate need of leadership that will truly be friendly to business. Government leaders must realize the solution is not to give out more state jobs and promote a " phony" business climate. 2014 must be a year of reform and change. Follow DePetro.com.

|Tells it all|
The unemployment Governor.
State remains in crisis.
Social agenda over jobs.
Governor Chafee still has one more year in office, and his path of destruction on Rhode Island will be felt for years to come. Never have we seen a governor, so consumed with his own selfish agenda, allow the state to go down the drain. At a time when the population needed a true leader, we were stuck with an incompetent fool that could not lead a two car funeral. How low can it go?

As 2013 winds down, it has been a year of significant progress by two leading reformers in our state. General Treasurer Gina Raimondo has continued to demonstrate tremendous leadership, by moving the state forward towards pension reform. Raimondo has faced a barrage of criticism from special interest groups, but continues to plunge ahead with the citizens behind her.
Education Commissioner Deborah Gist faced vicious attacks and unrelenting obstacles in her quest to raise the standards of education performance in our state, but the positive results speak for themselves. Let's hope in 2014 both of these leaders will gain more support and respect for their tremendous accomplishments. Follow the races of 2014 here on DePetro.com.

|Gina in the lead|
Brown Poll has Raimondo in the lead. Where is Pell?
What happened with Taveras poll?
Block is a challenge to Fung.
Very interesting Brown poll released shows General Treasurer Gina Raimondo with a commanding lead over Mayor Angel Taveras in the race for Governor. Will Gina run as an independent? No need. She " owns" the independents and would beat Angel in a Democrat primary. Many questions now raised over poll released in September by Taveras people that showed Angel with the lead. Good showing by Mayor Alan Fung which sets up a Ken Block /Fung in a GOP primary . Brown poll.
