Local woman starts petition to defend DePetro

" Stop unions and politicians who want to silence their harshest critic."

Peggy Price

Petition begins. Don't let unions and politicians silence people.

Peggy Price jumps forward for liberty.

A local woman, Peggy Price, has stepped forward and started a petition to defend radio host John DePetro.  Click here to sign." We have to stop the unions and politicians who want to silence their harshest critic", said Price. " I think we are in dangerous territory when labor teams up with politicians to remove a member of the media, simply because they do not like his criticism. That is what this is about. Period. The rest of it is just noise." Price said she is a faithful listener to his talk show and is fed up with the lack of leadership in the state. " Rhode Island has the second highest unemployment in the country, the politicians do nothing, the unions run the state house, and their solution is to remove John DePetro? Give me a break". Price said she does not like MSNBC " so I do not watch it". I do not get it. They seem obsessed with John DePetro because he speaks the truth about the issues in the state. " This is like a sports team in last place, who bans a reporter from the locker room for criticizing the team." Price said she enjoys the show and loves the humor. " John DePetro is entertaining and informative and that is why he is popular."

Can Rhode Island be saved ?

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.

2013 the year of the reformers

 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.

Will Raimondo hit $3 million by end of year?

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.

Christmas tree controversy in Rhode Island 2013

Sorry, no room for Christmas.

The battle for Christmas 2013.

How will Governor Gump bungle it this year?

Chafee has two more years to deny Christmas.

Is there a Cranston controversy?

Chafee tries to lure veterans to call it " hero" tree.

It the most wonderful time of the year, unless you are "Scrooge" Chafee. Governor Chafee is set to go down as the worst governor in the history of Rhode Island and his legacy will be the " Holiday Tree". Not gay marriage, and not improving the economy. The one thing people will remember about Governor Gump, (with the exceptions of liberal media losers like Scott MacKay), was his insistence on calling a Christmas Tree a " holiday " tree. What will the Gumpster call it this year?  In 2011, John DePetro led a group of 500 carolers who sang " O' Christmas Tree" at the tree lighting ceremony. In 2012, Gump quickly lit the tree with little warning while DePetro was on the radio.One veteran claims the governor is already tying to get around it by calling it a " hero" tree. A flyer went out in Cranston for a " tree lighting" ceremony, but Mayor  Fung claims it was an error and it is a Christmas tree. Follow DePetro.com for the latest on the controversy.
