this week’s poll

How good do you feel about Rhode Island?

Posted 3/23/14

Rhode Island was showered with accolades last week, from having Providence be named America’s most “exciting” mid-sized city by Movoto Real Estate to having the Capital City ranked as the No 2 most “livable” downtown in the United States, according to, to having 10 Ocean State chefs named to the list of Coastal New England Rising Star Awards list of 27.

Of course, the fact that the state has the highest unemployment rate in the nation could put a damper on all that feel-good news. The question is, does it do that to you? Are you a glass half-full or half-empty kind of person?
