    Just finished reading Phil West’s latest excerpt from his “scandals” book. It’s curious what’s in his latest piece – fines being paid out to the R I Foundation, etc. But when I went looking for info on the “R I Taxpayers” group he mentions I couldn’t find anything about who is on their board from their website. Then I found this R I Future piece and the first installment to it at Progressive Charlestown:

    I don’t think I am always on the same page as Will Collette, and the traffic light cameras he writes so enthusiastically about, I consider to be an almost criminal example of privacy encroachment and corporate welfare for yet another “innovative” start up failure(Nestor), but I am very grateful for the exposure he gives to this elitist group masquerading as another RIPEC/Hasbro style “reform” organization.
