From the ProJo’s 7 to 7 News Blog.

Governor Carcieri nominated Supreme Court Justice Paul A. Suttell Thursday to be the next chief justice of the Rhode Island Supreme Court. The nomination requires the confirmation of the state House of Representatives and the state Senate. If confirmed, Justice Suttell will fill the vacancy that was created by the retirement of Chief Justice Frank Williams.

Wow-glad he didn’t pick Maureen McKenna Goldberg.
Suttell is about as controversial as Barbara Morse Silva.

Monique,
Don’t you know that bringing up the controversial spouse is very sexist of you?
I am very pleased by the governor’s selection.
