Host: John Carlevale Produced: August 9, 2012 Run time: 60 minutes
These three political party chairmen address the fundamental question: What’s a citizen to do to become involved in the issues, concerns and problems facing Rhode Island and the political process? They advise: First learn about the problems and possible solutions to these problems. Second, begin to develop an action plan. Third, put that plan into action. Fourth, become involved politically. The chairmen fill in the spaces with a topically broad discussion of what these problems are from a uniquely political philosophical perspective. They offer some practical solutions to some of these problems; and accent what their respective political party is doing to engage people. Above all they urge: Get involved!
