    My State Rep. is holding an informational meeting for his constituents on Sat., 3/12 and co-hosting another on Monday, 3/14 with a State Senator from my area. Both voted Yes to RhodeWorks. I am against RhodeWorks as it stands. It will be interesting to hear their thoughts on this. I don’t know of any other politician holding any public meetings on this. What I do know is that our roads/bridges need to be fixed.

    Self interest is what we get in Tax Island. These elected union officials in the GA are an embarrassment to themselves and to the taxpayers. Every Yes vote should be motivation enough to vote them out when their terms are up. The Speaker and Governor are two of the most short sighted people that we could ever have in Tax Island. A real Governor and Speaker should be looking at ways to tightening budgets, reducing spending, curtailing none essential programs, eliminating waste and fraud (low hanging fruit as they say) and developing a real plan for business attraction, retention and growth. And what do we get, more taxes. Where do we go, we can’t get any lower than 50th in the country.

    They vote for this , we need to vote them out !
    All I received in email replies were a form letter same from every single one ….what do we pay them for ? I emailed 3 times a week for the the last few weeks asking for information – got 0 answers just a form letter last week .
    Who do they think they are ?
    I love RI but I can’t afford to live / work here – tolls are going to kill everything and none of them care / just a stepping stone for this useless Gov. They are all out for themselves .

    Frankly, it’s pathetic to see so many No Responses…but then again this is Rhode Island and our elected officials have no balls but prefer to fence sit till the end. I would say “take notice” come re-election time…we are watching you all and will not hesitate to use our vote to show you the door. SMH.

    Sadly, regardless of how many democrats vote FOR the tolls, few will see any consequences at the the polls as there are too many people connected to, and dependent on democrats to keep their gravy train running. Too many will take one for the machine to keep the goodies.

    Thanks to all who have the common sense to oppose this toll plan, which would soon turn the gantry scanners on cars after the plan fails to yield revenue projections. We have the money in our $8.7 billion budget, and need only to re-prioritize dollars there to bridge and road maintenance. We all need sound infrastructure, and state spending should reflect that reality.
