The Rotunda #199 7/8/19 - Scott returns to true form tonight as he reviews the blistering report on the state of Providence schools. Having failed to educate Providence youth for years, the school system is now actively harming these children by sending them out into the world woefully unprepared for life as an adult. As the Chief Executive of Providence, this falls on the Mayor's shoulders - and although it is not all his fault, and this has been kicked down the curb by past administrations, Scott feels that it is time to show some actual leadership, and accept the responsibility.
Jaimie Adler from OneHope Wines shares her story about the wonderful philanthropic work that she is doing by hosting wine tasting parties. This is a great segment to listen in to, as you get real examples of the good work that is done by this organization.
We also have Electra Govoni joining us for the third segment, to talk about The Alternative Board - a helpful place for CEO's looking for sounding boards and best practices to help them grown their organizations the the next level. There's beneficial info in this segment not just for business leaders, but frankly anyone who is looking to grow as a person.
Scott also touches on a topic very close to home for him - the new, relaxed standards for eminent domain in Pawtucket. Is this another way for government to grab property to enrich themselves and their friends - or is it a unique way to help a community that's been left reeling by significant departures of late? Give it a listen and let me know!
