Making State Government Work Again: Breakfast@65West with Rhode Island Treasurer Gina Raimondo
Wednesday, December 05, 2012 7:30 AM - 9:00 AM
Members and their guests are cordially invited to join us when Breakfast@65West, in partnership with the Institute for Truth in Accounting, welcomes Rhode Island Treasurer Gina Raimondo.
Reservations are allowed from 10/1/2012 9:00:00 AM to 12/4/2012 10:00:00 AM
Treasurer Raimondo has become a nationally-recognized leader in reforming state government, having been described by The Wall Street Journal as "The Democrat Who Took on the Unions." Treasurer Raimondo will discuss how she persuaded the voting public, labor rank-and-file, and Rhode Island's Democratic-controlled General Assembly to put state pensions back on sound financial footing.
A former venture capitalist, Treasurer Raimondo was a Rhodes Scholar at Oxford and has a bachelor's degree from Harvard and a law degree from Yale. The mother of two children, she embarked on a political career after learning about the closing of local library branches and decided "enough was enough."
Breakfast@65West begins with breakfast service at 7:30, followed by the program at 8:00 and adjournment by 9:00. The price is $25 per person inclusive and the reservation policy is in effect.
