The New England First Amendment Coalition is calling on Rhode Island Gov. Gina Raimondo to resume full press briefings and allow direct questioning from journalists.
The New England Newspaper & Press Association has also endorsed NEFAC’s letter. The Rhode Island Press Association sent a separate letter expressing similar concerns about the governor’s inaccessibility.
The governor has not made herself available for questions from journalists since being nominated last month for Commerce Secretary in President-Elect Joseph Biden’s Administration
