State of the State RI

Guest: Ken Block, WatchdogRI.org
Host: Richard August
Ken Block and his organization WatchdogRI continue to gather information regarding the cost of fire service in Rhode Island, which according to his research finds Rhode Island to be the highest among comparable communities in the USA. His most recent obstacle is the high cost of obtaining public records from the City of Providence, estimated to be in excess of one thousand dollars. To meet this challenge, Block has established a “fund me” account online, which allows citizens to contribute to the cost of obtaining these public records. For more information, visit WatchdogRI.org.
