Glad pols are 'working for us'

As a relatively new resident to Jamestown, but a 27-year resident of Rhode Island, I was thrilled to read in the Press "that all of the winning candidates are anxious to get to work for the people of Rhode Island." After Jack Welch's comments about Rhode Island about which Gov. Carcieri agreed, I am happy to know that our politicians are planning to do what they have been hired to do. With Rhode Island taking the number one spot as having the worst unemployment rate in the USA and one of the 10 highest taxing states, my question to the incumbents is "What people were you anxious to work for last time you won your political seat?"
