Quick Note: Frank Caprio
I caught State Treasurer Frank Caprio on Channel 10’s Newsmakers (video) this past Sunday. He sounded like a conservative fiscal thinker to me and trotted out some examples of the forward-thinking policies he’s enacted that have redounded well for the State of Rhode Island. He also described how he worked with the union to get what amounts to merit pay/promotions in place in his office. Overall, I gotta say I was intrigued with what I picked up about his political philosophy and demeanor. It’s no surprise, as Ian Donnis explains, that Caprio could prove to be a problem for the progressive RI Democrats come the 2010 gubernatorial race.
