Campaigning from Beneath a Blanket

Justin Katz

My piece in the Providence Journal today addresses some common misconceptions about Rhode Islanders' voting habits and the implications for non-partisan elections. Colby Cook illustrated the piece with a cartoon, which is thus far an Anchor Rising exclusive:

Great piece, Justin.

In particular, the RIGOP should make the following its mantra:

"... and while everybody is content to believe that the friendly Democrat whom each of the vast majority of state districts puts into office will work hard to do right by the state, at the end of the governing process, the General Assembly that they rule has brought us to a precipice of annual structural deficits in the hundreds of millions and an unfunded pension liability in the billions. Worse, the gang continues to work against reform."
