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.

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 ...

Cicilline (D-RI), a member of the House Judiciary Committee, today requested that the Attorney General of the United States, Loretta Lynch, open an investigation into how John Russell Houser was able to legally purchase a handgun despite being involuntarily committed to a mental institution in 2008. Houser used the .40-caliber handgun to murder two people and wound nine others in a Louisiana movie theater last week.   “Neither Houser nor Dylann Roof should have been able to get their hands on a gun. That much is obvious,” wrote Cicilline. “What is less clear is why the existing background check system has failed twice already this year, and what must be done to prevent such failures in the future.”   Reports indicate that Houser was involuntarily committed to a mental institution in 2008 by a Georgia probate judge – a fact that should have barred him from purchasing a gun under existing Federal law [18 U.S.C. § 922(g)(4)].
