    They are not expanding in RI. They are expanding in PROVIDENCE. As the company’s leadership stated, the choice was between Boston and PROVIDENCE and it was the city’s assets that won the day, not the state’s.

    Would you have stated “Virgin Pulse expanding in MA, to bring 300 jobs over next five years” if it went to Boston????

    Please get off the RI frame of reference. RI is just part of the Providence Metro, Providence is the national destination that corporations consider, Providence is the economic, social, cultural, culinary, educational, and governmental center of southern New England – not “RI”.
