Mollis on Newsmakers

Secretary of State Ralph Mollis says he supports Clean Elections' legislation as a way of making elections in Rhode Island more competititve, and he thinks campaign-finance reform could become law once the state moves past its ongoing budget woes. Mollis make the remarks this morning during a taping of WPRI/WNAC-TV's Newsmakers.

While there might be just one legislative primary -- House District 39 -- with both Democratic and Republican opponents on Tuesday, Mollis said that many other candidates are running in local races.

Also appearing on this week's show, to be broadcast Sunday, at 5:30 am on Channel 12 and at 10 am on Fox 65, are state Senator James Doyle (D-Pawtucket) and Deputy US Marshal C.J. Wyant. The duo, who recently traveled to a conference in Dallas about sex offenders, talk about efforts to curb such crimes.

    Thanks for this report.  It strikes me that RI is in deep need of this sort of reform, as the case of Maine, Arizona, and (as of this election year) Connecticut show.

    It makes you wonder what these people get when they make a contribution for an election.  The elections aren't competitive because contributors know who to give to (and what influence they get in return).
