Cicilline campaign responds to Doherty, Gemma criticism

Rep. David N. Cicilline has responded to criticism that his stewardship of Providence's finances as mayor for eight years contributed to the conditions that led current Mayor Angel Taveras to warn of possible bankruptcy Thursday. Cicilline's Republican opponent in the 1st District, Brendan Doherty -- and his probable primary challenger, Democrat Anthony Gemma -- both blamed Cicilline Thursday following Taveras' announcement. Cicilline's campaign spokeswoman, Nicole Kayner, responded in an e-mail ... Source: providencejournal.com

Strengthening the State of our Union

President Obama offered Congress a plan to rebuild our economy with proposals focused on manufacturing, innovation, and workforce training proposals that I and many of my colleagues support and have already been working hard to advance in Congress. This is especially necessary in my home state of Rhode Island, which lost 11,000 manufacturing jobs during the Great Recession and continues to struggle with a 10.8% unemployment rate, the third highest of any state. If the House Republican leadership is serious about working together and with the President to put America back to work, they should ...

What sort of examination of the California start-up company’s finances did the government do before taking such a big risk?According to a news release we received the other ...

House Judiciary Committee Adopts Cicilline Amendment to Allow Investigation Regarding Russian Interference in Elections
WASHINGTON – During consideration of its Authorization and Oversight Plan for the 115th Congress, the U.S. House Judiciary Committee today adopted an amendment offered by U.S. Congressman David N. Cicilline to ensure the Committee is empowered to investigate foreign attempts to interfere in American elections.   “I’m pleased that Republicans and Democrats were able to find common ground on this important issue today,” said Cicilline. “Russia’s interference in the 2016 election cannot be allowed to repeat itself. All of us have an interest in protecting the integrity of our democracy. It’s critical that we remain vigilant, and prepared to confront and thoroughly investigate any foreign interference, no matter which party finds itself under attack.”   During debate on the Authorization and Oversight Plan, Cicilline amended a proposal offered by Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-VA) regarding oversight of the Executive Branch. The Rhode Island Congressman su
Cicilline, Foreign Affairs Dems Ask Chairman to Compel Flynn’s Testimony
WASHINGTON – U.S. Congressman David N. Cicilline (D-RI) today led 19 of his colleagues on the House Foreign Affairs Committee in a letter to Chairman Ed Royce (R-CA) demanding that former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn appear before the Committee as soon as possible to give sworn testimony regarding the Trump administration’s ties to the Kremlin. “Our country’s national security, independence, and democratic institutions are at stake,” the Committee Members wrote. “As the body within the House with jurisdiction over U.S. foreign policy, we would be negligent if we left the questions about this incident unanswered. We must investigate who from the Trump transition team was aware of contacts between General Flynn and Ambassador Kislyak, what was discussed, and what President Trump and Vice President Pence knew about this conversation and when they knew it.” Flynn, who served as President Trump’s National Security Advisor for just 24 days, resigned yesterday after
Pledging to Fix Broken Campaign Finance System, Cicilline Introduces DISCLOSE Act of 2017
PAWTUCKET – Continuing his commitment to champion campaign finance reform, U.S. Congressman David N. Cicilline (D-RI) today announced the introduction of the Disclosure of Information on Spending on Campaigns Leads to Open and Secure Elections (DISCLOSE) Act of 2017 (H.R. 1134). “Since 2010, corporations have spent hundreds of millions of dollars in secret to send more Republicans to Washington. This broken system has empowered anti-worker, pro-Wall Street candidates. It’s time for the American people to rise up and fight back,” said Cicilline. “I’m grateful that so many of my colleagues are joining me in this effort today. Secret political spending by corporations is destructive to the interests of working families. The American people have a right to know how powerful, multinational corporations are spending their money to influence the political process.” Seven years ago, the Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision opened the floodgates to unrestricted special inter
Cicilline Statement on Withdrawal of Trump’s Labor Secretary Nominee
WASHINGTON – U.S. Congressman David N. Cicilline (D-RI) issued the following statement today after President Donald Trump’s nominee to lead the U.S. Department of Labor, Andrew Puzder, withdrew his nomination:   “Andrew Puzder was always unqualified to serve as Secretary of Labor. His record as a corporate CEO was defined by his total disregard for working men and women.”   “The next Secretary of Labor must be a champion for the working men and women of this country.  This individual must support raising the minimum wage to a living wage, defend President Obama’s overtime rule that ensures hard work is rewarded and valued, and be ready to fight to keep good-paying jobs here in the United States.”   “President Trump campaigned as a champion of working families. He should make sure his next nominee matches this rhetoric.”
