Gina Raimondo has had a busy year since taking office as Rhode Island’s first female governor last January. The Democrat campaigned on a theme of improving the state’s economy, and that remains a central issue.
Raimondo recently sat down in her State House office to discuss her first year with Rhode Island Public Radio political reporter Ian Donnis.
In part I, the topics include jobs, the economy, education, the I-195 District and tolls. Part II will air tomorrow.
(If she sounds a bit raspy, that’s because she was battling a cold at the time.)
