NEW: Raimondo Featured In Institutional Investor on Pension Reform

Thursday, January 10, 2013

 

Rhode Island State Treasurer Gina Raimondo sat down for an in-depth interview with well-known business website institutionalinvestor.com this week to discuss the battle for pension reform in the Ocean State.

Rhode Island State Treasurer Gina Raimondo is getting big press today for her efforts in helping the state battle pension reform in an in-depth interview with business website institutionalinvestor.com.

In a lengthy story on the front page of the site, Raimondo chronicles her initial struggles in gaining traction for reform following her report on the pension crisis titled “Truth in Numbers: The Security and Sustainability of Rhode Island’s Retirement System” and discusses how Central Falls’ financial collapse paved the way for her winning support for the changes she ultimately paved the way for.

“I just could not live with myself for not fixing the retirement system, knowing at some point in time the well would run dry and someone would be told they don’t have a pension” she told the site.

The story also discusses Raimondo’s growing political clout in the state—with Democratic National Chairman fundraiser Orin Kramer saying that she “has a great future,”—and gives a lengthy report on Raimondo’s background and what ultimately led her into the Ocean State spotlight.
