So I’ve been sort of taking pot shots at the Rhode Island legislature for essentially giving away the candy store. For years they have granted tax incentives and breaks for the likes of Bank of America, Fidelity, American Power Conversion, Gtech et al.
But all of them have to some degree or another have flown the coop of Rhode Island for greener pastures out there.
Meanwhile we have a burgeoning infosec, I.T. and film and video sector in the state that gets short shrift.
So I propose we flip the script so to speak. Fuck Bank of America, Fidelity and those who betrayed us.
Give some serious tax breaks and help to the sectors I mentioned. And I’m tagging a few people in the legislature here including the Speaker and President. Might the hell as well do it.
