Could the Gano street debacle lose the election for Raimondo?

The Gano Street Debacle Nightmare

  The Raimondo administration made the decision with the state DOT to close the Gano street exit and begin a 18 month project on 195 and the Washington Bridge. Huh? The decision has turned into a life-changing nightmare for commuters and it is only day 4. The project is delaying drivers over an hour during the  morning commute and things will get worse with back to school.

Dancing Queena

 Drivers coming from Barrington and Bristol have found the 15 minute commute to Providence has become an hour and 20 minutes. Drivers coming into Rhode Island from Seekonk and Fall River have added 75 minutes extra to their commute. It is August 2018 and this project is expected to continue until Spring of 2020. When asked about the delay of drivers, Governor Raimondo appeared unaware and unconcerned about the drivers having commutes worse than New York City and Boston.

 The state DOT has advised drivers to seek "alternate routes" but it is a bridge and the city of Providence has construction all over the East Side. Who in their right mind would order this project with an election coming up in November? Wait for it.. Gina Raimondo. In what could be her biggest screw up to date, "the Gov" has added another level of moronic decisions. The Gano street debacle has come on the heels of the state losing the Pawsox due to poor political leadership from Raimondo. Perhaps DOT read the wrong map and the plan was to try and prevent the Pawsox from leaving by clogging the roads? Wrong bridge.

 Watch the poll numbers for Raimondo in the East bay. How long will the delays be in the snow? Ice? This horrendous decision could cost Raimondo the election because it is an issue that is easy to understand and effects the quality of life for voters.

Raimondo lost the Pawsox and Rhode Island wants to lose Raimondo

Raimondo Campaign

The legacy of Governor Gina Raimondo will be the Governor who drove Benny's out of business and lost the Pawtucket Red Sox. Raimondo has been an unmitigated disaster as Governor of Rhode Island and will not see another four years on Smith Hill after the November election. You read it here first. In what could only be described as a combination of incompetence mixed with arrogance, Raimondo was exposed as an ineffective buffoon who was caught completely off guard by the Pawsox gang.  The Governor of Massachusetts Charlie Baker laughed at the notion Raimondo would " go down swinging" trying to save the deal to keep the Pawsox in Pawtucket, as she was too busy campaigning to even find out what was going on.  

 How weak is the Governor of Rhode Island? Gina is still trying to fight off Progressive Matt Brown and was too afraid to even mention the name " Speaker Mattiello" at her pathetic Friday night press conference. Sources confirm Mattiello instructed the Raimondo team " not to mention his name" and Raimondo sheepishly went along. What a spineless, gutless jellyfish who only talks tough when it is politically convenient. Raimondo will go down in history as a governor "worse then Chafee" and we did not think that was possible.  The Raimondo poll numbers keep going down as the campaign has shifted into full fledged panic mode. Raimondo lost the Pawsox! McCoy will be the new version of where a place "use to be." 

The roads are a mess, tolls are up, UHIP is now costing close to $700 million and businesses are leaving the state. Sources say the Pawsox owners had nothing good to say about Raimondo who they described as "weak and useless."Sources also say the  Pawsox owners described the Speaker as " slimy as they come and not a guy you want to do business with." This time and there no "handshakes and hugs." Raimondo and Mattiello are two elected leaders who are not ready for prime-time.
