Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker and Rhode Island Governor Gina Raimondo met in Providence Tuesday.
According to staffers from Governor Raimondo’s office, the meeting was informal. The governors were expected to discuss college hockey and the first-ever championship for Providence College, which beat out longtime rival Boston University.
The two state leaders were also set to talk about the economy, and what can be done to bolster the region. Massachusetts has seen declines in unemployment, while Rhode Island has recovered more slowly from the recession.
The governors ate lunch at the Italian restaurant Angelo’s in Providence’s historic Federal Hill neighborhood.
