Welcome to Gump Island

No respect

Fire Chief outgoing "sickening" pay

8.7 million in overtime?

$100 grand for not getting sick

" interim " chief pulls in $98k a year

Providence has highest commercial taxes in USA

Where else can you grab close to $ 100,000 on your way out the door for not getting sick? Rhode Island has third highest unemployment in the country but you would never know it by the way things are still done in Providence. How much in " unused" vacation pay?  This is obscene .

Is he running for Gov?

Providence will become the next " Detroit" or " Central Falls".  No city can sustain the insane pensions and obligations as they continue to kill business.

Tolls will be political showdown in 2014

.10 cents

The " toll troll" is the new nickname tagged on Dave Darlington of the RIBTA. The .10 cent tolls placed on the bridge will climb next April 2014, and prove to be a major campaign issue for next year. It is rare in politics to have such a tangible issue to "run against" such as a tax or a toll. This issue is not going away and will be pivotal in the 2014 race. Follow DePetro.com for the latest.
