What do candidates for governor say about transportation choices?

Gubernatorial DebateFrom the Coalition for Transportation Choices:

The future of Rhode Island’s transportation system is important to you, but what do the candidates for Governor of Rhode Island say about their commitment to fostering transportation choices?

On September 28, the Environment Council of Rhode Island and the Providence College Political Science Department & Board of Programmers co-hosted a Gubernatorial candidates forum at Providence College. Kenneth Block, Frank Caprio, Lincoln Chafee and John Robitaille answered a series of questions about Rhode Island’s future including the following question on transportation:

“Rhode Island’s transportation funding system is broken. More of the state’s borrowing goes to cover interest payments than current highway improvements and we are cutting back RIPTA services. What is your strategy to improve and modernize Rhode Island’s transportation system?”

You can view a video of the candidate’s response to this and other questions here or review NBC 10’s coverage of the full debate here.
