What do former Governor Don Carcieri, Rev. Bernard Healey and John DePetro all have in common? The three biggest enemies of civil liberties in Rhode Island? Three people only popular on WPRO? Three people who progressives wish kept to themselves?
Even more precisely, these three pillars of Ocean State conservatism will be appearing together, on stage, Wednesday, May 8 at the Odeum Theater in the most infamously Republican town in Rhode Island, East Greenwich. (Ed. note: also RI Future headquarters) They’ll be joined by Alex and Ani CEO Giovanni “John” Feroce – who you may have known was a Republican state senator on Smith Hill from 1992 to 1994.
It’s part of the newly-renovated theater’s “mission of providing a variety of social, cultural and educational opportunities,” according to a press release sent by former Providence Journal and PBN editor Frank Prosnitz, who did not mention exactly which category this trio falls into.
It did say it was the first of a three part lecture series at the Odeum Theater for hometown boy John DePetro. Future guests will be unveiled by DePetro at a press conference today at 1 p.m. at the Odeum, 59 Main St.
