Flanders is the only person on the panel who may actually say what needs to be said; the rest will offer-up what they do best: political rhetoric.

Tim- Do not let the door hit you on the way out. It probably will not. Such is the way of slippery weasels.

1. Who are the economists in this group?
2. While were not more municipal officials included? One from the small, intermediate, and large cities. Bristol can be listed as a large town by rI standards.
3. The Governor-Elect should at one point invite people from groups like the tea party,OSPRI, and Operation Clean Government. These groups seem to be missing. Politics does not necessarily mean agreement or shared goals.
However these groups have support, and an independent Governor especially needs to show interest interest in both major parties Democrat and Republican. Since the Dems are by far the dominant party and the Governor-Elect has given high profile positions to two former Dem. Lt. Governors, it will be interesting to what effect non Democrats will have influence.
