Will Raimondee become the " Toll Troll?"

Paging Dave Darlington. Governor Gina Raimondo has decided to " grow our way out" of the current economic mess( while taking another shot towards private business) by setting up tolls on truckers. The state with the worst bridges and roads in the free world has decided to make private business pay for all the mistakes of the past and begin bridge tolling on the Ocean state roads. Raimondo, (who is starting to believe the political hype around her), is off to a shaky start as governor to say the least. There is no argument the bridges on the rt 6- rt 10 connector are being held together by string, but the thought of another tax/toll  on local companies is out of the Chafee playbook. Democrats have run the state into the ground and now the latest liberal democrat does not seem to know how to get the state out of the proverbial " quicksand." Raimondo has poor approval ratings( rumored to be below 40%), and her team continues to misread public reaction to her announcements. Between the  Pawsox deal, the Taylor Swift tax, the war on Catholic education, and now the truck tolls, Governor Gina is having a rough first 6 months in office. Raimondo and her team are described by one rep on Smith hill as " arrogant, condescending, rookies who always think they are the smartest in the room." Listen weekdays from 9-noon to 99.7 FM for the latest.
