For years, Rhode Island political figures had all warned of the same thing: The state could be facing a political showdown come 2022. But census figures released earlier this week show that not to be the case, dramatically rearranging the gubernatorial race next year.
Rhode Island’s two congressional seats are filled by two Democrats, David Cicilline and James Langevin. Both have been prominent figures in state politics for decades, Cicilline since he became mayor of Providence in 2003 and Langevin since he was elected Secretary of State in 1994.
But many thought Rhode Island’s population would not grow enough by 2020 to keep its second congressional district, eliminating Langevin’s seat and potentially pitting the two politicians against each other

In all of the Star Wars Universe, there is no character (or rather characters) that are more loved as well as respected than the clone troopers. Making their big screen debut in Episode II: The Clone Wars in 2003, they were portrayed as battle-hardened soldiers created from the DNA template of bounty hunter Jango Fett with their sole purpose of fighting and completing their mission objective. This, unfortunately, included carrying out the infamous Order 66 which wiped out the Jedi.
Then in 2008, David Fiolini came out with the critically acclaimed 3D animated cartoon series, Star Wars: Clone Wars. Here, the clones were not just portrayed as militaristic soldiers following orders without order. Rather, they were shown to have their own individual personality as well as their own personal beliefs on fighting the Clone Wars, the treatment of themselves, standing up to a corrupt Jedi, and showing an unbreakable brotherhood bond within the Clone Army.
The Rhode Island League of Cities and Towns announces its position on proposals for the legalization of adult recreational use marijuana today. This comes ahead of the House Finance Committee’s hearing scheduled for Thursday, April 29th on Article 11 of the Governor’s budget (the legalization of adult recreational use marijuana).
“What we have heard overwhelmingly from municipal counterparts in other states is that, if Rhode Island legalizes marijuana, our cities and towns will bear most of the direct burden,” said Brian Daniels, Executive Director of the League. “As different proposals are vetted by the General Assembly, our number one priority remains the same – ensuring that local governments have sufficient operational control, oversight and resources in any legalization proposal to lessen the burden on our residents and our community.”
