Well, David Cicilline leaving Congress this year will shake up RI politics a bit!

Politics is full of wildcards:

Cicilline said he will resign from Congress effective June 1, 2023, to serve as the next president and CEO of the Rhode Island Foundation.

“Serving the people of Rhode Island’s First Congressional District has been the honor of my lifetime. As President and CEO of one of the largest and oldest community foundations in the nation, I look forward to expanding on the work I have led for nearly thirty years in helping to improve the lives of all Rhode Islanders,” Cicilline said in a statement.

A new congressperson may be good, bad, or indifferent.  The same is true of having the political landscape shaken up a bit, because it creates opportunity for change which can be positive or negative.

This development is almost certainly a bad omen for the RI Foundation, though, which has become an increasingly political organization over the past decade.
