July 12, 2013 at 11:39 AM (PT)
The op-ed column "Your Voice, Your Turn" at CUMULUS Talk WPRO-A/PROVIDENCE's website 630WPRO.COM is featuring a commentary from RHODE ISLAND Governor LINCOLN CHAFEE discussing his switch in MAY from independent to Democrat after switching from Republican to Independent in 2007.
CHAFEE writes that the switch “isn’t about politics, it’s about principles ... As long as Democratic leaders all across this country are standing for what is right – for growing the middle class, for education, for identifying smart and constructive strategies to get our people back to work, for asking everyone to pay their fair share, for tolerance of diversity – I will stand with them.”
PD CRAIG SCHWALB said, “Offering Governor CHAFEE's comments today further underscores the importance of 630WPRO.COM’s ‘Your Voice, Your Turn’ Op-Ed platform. The people of RHODE ISLAND deserve more than just tweets and headlines in this digital age, and WPRO-AM is proud to offer a deeper dive into our leaders’ thoughts and beliefs.”
