The best Rhode island news all year..
General Treasurer seen as last hope for Rhode Island
|Can she save one million people?|
Little Rhody seems to be on running on empty into the bottom of the 9th inning of survival as a viable state, with a very important election coming up next year for governor. Rhode Island is on the verge of becoming a permanent "welfare state "unless something changes dramatically in the next four years. As John DePetro has said on the radio, 4 more years of Governor Gump would crush the state with no chance of coming back. Although Fung or Taveras would be " ABC"( anybody but Chafee), the money seems to be on the General Treasurer.
|Say goodbye if Gump stays|
|Can she throw him out?|

Gov Gump does not give vote of confidence
Never trust a guy who keeps switching parties. Governor Chafee hints that he may let Deb Gist go by raising a major red flag during the key week ( sounds like a rigged vote). John DePetro has predicted that Gov Chafee is not to be trusted.
|Chafee surrounded by his inner circle|
|Is Eva the hit woman?|
|Does Chafee regard her as a "Carcieri " hire?|
Once a rising star, now never seen or heard
|Have you seen her ?|
There was a time when LT. gov " liberal" Liz Roberts seemed like a woman on the move. Then Gina Raimondo entered the scene, and Roberts has gone into deeper hiding then Bobby Deluca. Roberts beat back Jeremy Kapstein in a primary in September 2010, but then seemed to enter into the " witness protection "program. As John DePetro mentioned on WPRO, even during the blizzard she was nowhere to be seen at EMA headquarters. Roberts put out a release on Chafee becoming a democrat, but it was as "vanilla" as Senator Whitehouse in South Providence. Roberts has the right last name, the title, and money. So what happened? Gina Raimondo. Gina has the money, confidence and star power " Liberal Liz" could only dream about. Raimondo remains the favorite to be the next Governor of Rhode Island.
|The real rising star|
Who will Gump choose as running mate on party ticket with him?
|Maybe the first "illegal alien" as LT Gov|
|Will he select a woman?|
|Jason Pleau is the wildcard choic|
Education Commissioner has not back down to union thugs
Board set to vote June 6, D-Day
Her contract is up Friday June 7
|The state must keep her|
The teachers unions in Rhode Island have bullied and rallied all union hacks to oppose Deborah Gist remaining as the education commissioner. Prior to Gist, Rhode Island public schools were "a race to the bottom " ,with the most expensive (yet under performing )school system in America. Gist has tried to make teachers accountable for lack of performance in the classroom and math scores that were below that of a third world nation. The teachers union in Rhode Island is all about greed and not about teaching children. Gist has brought leadership and attempted to lift the standards for all the schools. It would be refreshing if Governor Gump could step forward and demonstrate half the courage and leadership Gist has displayed.
Public schools in Rhode Island are controlled by union hacks as opposed to educators. Although many good teachers have told DePetro.com they are bogged down with endless paperwork that they must fill out. Liberal elitist even took a mock NECAP exam and claimed students in school should not be tested! John DePetro has said they should work to make it easier for good teachers, and weed many bad teachers out. Gist must work to bring the good teachers to her side .
