Warwick, RI – Rhode Island Republican Party Chairman Joe Powers fiercely condemns Governor Dan McKee for his stunningly inadequate leadership and appalling lack of priorities, starkly illustrated by his participation in a political fundraiser for Rhode Island Department of Transportation Chief of Staff John Igliozzi while the state grapples with the Washington Bridge failure.
In a shocking revelation reported by GoLocalProv today, it was disclosed that “Governor Dan McKee was attending a political fundraiser for Rhode Island Department of Transportation Chief of Staff John Igliozzi on Tuesday night.”
Chairman Joe Powers minced no words in expressing his disdain for Governor McKee’s actions, stating, “Governor Dan McKee’s misplaced priorities are glaringly apparent in his decision to participate in a high-priced political fundraiser instead of prioritizing the urgent needs of the people he was elected to serve. Remember, it was Governor Dan McKee who said ‘It was all hands on deck.’ I guess unless your hands are busy grabbing appetizers at a high-ticket fundraiser for your political allies.”
The Rhode Island Republican Party condemns the Governor’s astonishing lack of foresight and responsibility, emphasizing that his choice to engage in political grandstanding during a critical infrastructure crisis demonstrates a shocking disregard for the well-being of Rhode Islanders.
The reported attendance at a fundraiser while the Washington Bridge failure continues to disrupt the lives of citizens sends a clear message about Governor McKee’s misplaced values and underscores the need for a leader who prioritizes the public over personal political gain.
