Governor Gina Raimondo marked her 100th day in office Thursday. Raimondo is taking part in several events to mark the occasion.
Along with two other appearances, Governor Raimondo is celebrating the 100th anniversary of two northern Rhode Island businesses, Yacht Club Soda and Navigant Credit Union.
Raimondo won election in November as the state’s first female governor. Since taking office, she’s dealt with severe winter weather and touted her proposed budget as a way to revitalize Rhode Island’s economy.
The proposed settlement of the state pension conflict is poised to eliminate a major distraction for Raimondo. And in a trend that began before she took office, improvements in the national economy are helping to nudge down Rhode Island’s unemployment rate.
