Cullen: Raimondo has failed frontline workers

House District 46 candidate John Cullen says he believes Gov. Gina Raimondo "failed and was derelict in not supporting frontline home care and hospice workers including those delivering service to COVID-19 positive patients in congregate settings."

"Gov. Raimondo spent money on her PR and daily briefings of body counts and contractions of COVID-19, when much more could have been spent and done to protect the most vulnerable COVID-19 population," he said. "I support the Rhode Island Partnership for Home Care and a $20 minimum wage and sustainable reimbursement rates. I support home care fully, since it brings comfort to your loved ones to be at home. My grandmother had home care and died at home in 1959."

"I call for an independent investigation of what Raimondo did right and what she did wrong in her response in protecting our most vulnerable in congregate settings," he added.
