“It is clear that Rhode Islanders support moving our state forward with this economic development opportunity for Pawtucket and Rhode Island. Rhode Islanders are right to be cautious, to ask questions and make sure we are making the right investments. This investment will support the city’s financial and economic development potential, as well as bring in new needed revenue above the current $2 million to the state.
When Rhode Islanders learn the facts about the proposal they support it. This will be a public, year–round facility for ball games, entertainment and concerts- that pays for itself- and is heavily supported through a private investment from the PawSox. This project has been discussed and vetted for over a year and it is clear that Rhode Island residents agree that this is the right investment and that we need to get this done now.”
