Sat Nov. 10th: Meet and greet with General Assembly members from Barrington, Warren, and Bristol

Please join Common Cause Rhode Island and General Assembly members from Barrington, Warren, and Bristol on Saturday November 10th from 10:00 am to 12:00pm at the Barrington Public Library for a discussion about issues of government transparency and accountability in Rhode Island.

This event is free and open to the public and is an opportunity for voters to meet their elected senators and representatives and listen to their plans for the upcoming legislative session. The program includes an informal meet and greet followed by an interactive question and answer section. Coffee and donuts will be served.

Common Cause Rhode Island is a nonpartisan nonprofit organization dedicated to the promotion of representative democracy by ensuring open, ethical, accountable and effective government processes at the local, state and national levels by educating and mobilizing the citizens of Rhode Island. 

In addition to being the only good government group in the state with a full time lobbyist at the State House to monitor fair and open political processes, we support community and State House-based educational programs to expand the capacity of citizen lobbyists and keep the public informed about issues of process in government. In 2012, two of our bills passed that expand the public's access to government records and strengthen our state's campaign finance disclosure. Our top policy priority for 2013 is ethics reform, a constitutional amendment to bring the General Assembly back under the jurisdiction of the Ethics Commission.

We look forward to seeing you on November 10th.  If you have any questions or request additional information, please contact our office at  (401) 861-2322 or
