Carcieri, Fogarty to participate in forum at statewide business expo
Both Governor Donald Carcieri and Lt. Governor Charles Fogarty have agreed to participate in a "Governor's Candidate Forum," at this year's Statewide Businessto Business Expo. The forum will begin at 2 p.m. at The Ryan Center on Wednesday, Oct. 4. Admission is free.
The forum will allow the candidates to present their plans for Rhode Island's economic future. Each speaker will present a fiveminute opening statement, followed by questions, formulated by the Chamber. Both Carcieri and Fogarty will be given time to respond.
They will appear together on stage; both will answer questions raised by the moderator, NBC 10 political reporter Bill Rappleye. The forum is expected to take about an hour, and give business leaders and citizens an opportunity to hear each candidate's economic plans before the general election in November.
The South Kingstown Chamber of Commerce will present the second annual Statewide Business to Business Expo sponsored by Cox Business Services. Exhibit booths are still available. To register, call 783-2801 or go to www.skchamber.com.
