From GoLocalProv.com by Paul J. Spetrini, GoLocalProv News Editor:
As Speaker of the House of Representatives, Gordon Fox is one of the most powerful and influential political figures in Rhode Island.
In his day job as an attorney in Providence, however, Fox sometimes has to represent clients who need him to deal directly with those in power on city boards and offices.
It’s the type of association that could lead some to wonder if there is a conflict of interest between Fox’s dual roles as a State Representative and as an attorney but, at least in the case of an entertainment license renewal for a Thayer Street based- restaurant, the Providence Democrat says there’s no need for concern.
