Pro Jo Editorial: Ports and playgrounds

July 1, 2009
"...the state needs to better preserve its working waterfronts to protect high-paying jobs and generate economic activity. Instead of letting developers try to turn the Port of Providence into yet another playground with marinas, festivals and hotels, the state should make sure Rhode Island preserves its ports for industrial activities that take place there. Such ports, with high-paying jobs, are important economic engines for the entire state, and they cannot be moved anywhere else."
