Treasurer Magaziner should stop using his office for political pronouncements.
Rhode Island General Treasurer Seth Magaziner just sent out a statement through his official spokesman and including the seal of his office: “Statement from Treasurer Magaziner Calling for Vaccine Requirement for Teachers and School Staff.”
“With children across Rhode Island returning to school this week, we must take immediate action to protect them from COVID-19,” said General Treasurer Seth Magaziner. “Rhode Island should join other states such as California, Illinois, New Jersey, New York, Oregon, and Washington in instituting a vaccination requirement for all teachers and school support staff.
This is inappropriate abuse of his office for political campaigning. Magaziner doesn’t even attempt to fabricate some argument that would connect this with the duties of his role as general treasurer.
