Cicilline Praises Raimondo Nomination

Jan 7, 2021

WASHINGTON – U.S. Congressman David N. Cicilline (RI-01) issued the following statement today:

“Nearly six years to the day after she took the oath of office on the steps of our State House, Governor Gina Raimondo prepares to leave Rhode Island in much better shape than she found it. Few governors have been as consequential for our state. None have matched her effectiveness, or the calm, steady hand with which she has guided us through this pandemic.”

“I congratulate Governor Raimondo on her nomination to serve as President-elect Biden’s Commerce Secretary. I look forward to continuing our work together during her remaining time as governor, and in her new role as Secretary of Commerce as we focus on rebuilding Rhode Island’s economy.”
