 FOR GOVERNOR

Thank you for visiting my site.  I hope to provide you with enough information about myself and my ideas so you can make an informed decision about whether I will be your choice on Election day.  

As an unknown applying for a job, I have provided you with my resume and a narrative of why I am running and why I could be your choice for Governor. 

On pages 2 through 4, I have written my ideas to help alleviate many of Rhode Island's woes.  The 5th page is a section that will be blank until I get ideas I like from you. If you should choose to contact me, my email address is ronaldalgieri@ronaldalgieriforrigovernor.com.  If you have additional source information, please provide it with your idea, so we can all be better informed.  Thank you once again for taking time out of your busy day to consider myself and my ideas.

Some people have asked me why I want to run for office.  The truth is I have wanted to run for office since I was watching the Clinton, Bush, Perot  debate in 1992.  I still remember being energized at the beginning of this event.  But in the debate I felt the tough issues weren't tackled or with enough detail. 

It is the problem with politics on the whole.  Politicians when running for office are afraid of details.  Look we all want better jobs, lower taxes, pristine roads, and well educated kids.  The problem is without infinite resources government can't fix infinite problems or perceived problems.  Our political leaders need the conviction to tell us how they will increase the revenues and/or decrease the spending in the state.   

Living with a small pool of resources,  like most of us, I and my wife have had to make many difficult decisions as to allocation of my wages so that our future will be better than today.  Even if it means sacrificing a want of today for a need of tomorrow.

This is one of the reasons I believe I can be your choice for Governor.  I am a frugal person.  I spend within my means and pay those who I owe on time or early.

In this web site you will see my ideas/plans on how to fix "some" of our problems.  My sincerest hope is that even if you have already picked another candidate to vote for, that if you see any ideas or have any of your own that your candidate is not speaking about or glossing over, please bring it to their attention.  We all have something to contribute to this process.  Each of us has some knowledge and insight about the challenges that confront us.

I know my chances of winning this office are microscopic.  I don't have a war chest.  I am not accepting money from any organization other than the state if I qualify for any matching funds.  I am not taking private donations from anyone but myself.  I have only my wife and kids as my organization. 

As I work from 3-11:30pm  Monday - Friday at the hospital I will not be able to attend many functions where I would get to meet face to face with you. (note: I am free in the am and on weekends if any groups are interested.)
