Fox’s First (Not Quite) 100 Days: More of the Same?

Wednesday, May 05, 2010

When Bill Murphy announced in 2009 that he would not seek re-election, the talk of his successor as Speaker of the House started immediately, and nearly as instantly, Gordon Fox was the top contender. After seven years as the Majority Leader, the number two-ranked member of the House, it only made sense.  In fact, before Murphy announced he was stepping down, would-be's for the job were already jockeying for the slot in 2011, eyeing Fox as the handpicked heir apparent.

Wednesday, May 05, 2010

Maybe we just are dense. Or is no one trying to add up the numbers?

GoLocalProv took its confusion over lobbying data managed and disseminated by the Secretary of State's office at its public information portal at www.sos.ri.gov, to the source.  And we asked why it was so hard to figure out how much any one lobbyist, or lobbying firm, really made.

Chris Barnett, communications director for Secretary A. Ralph Mollis, admitted that there are occasions on the site where even he needed five times looking at reports to figure out the distinction between executive and legislative lobbying figures, "until I had internalized the logic," he said.
