PROVIDENCE - The R.I. Division of Planning’s Statewide Planning Program, RhodeMap RI, will sponsor four public forums next week to gather input from citizens on living and working in the Ocean State, Gov. Lincoln D. Chafee announced.

Rhode Islanders will have the opportunity to give feedback on their experiences accessing education and training for a well-paying job, finding safe and affordable housing and running small businesses at the forums. The information will be used to help develop state policy on economic development, housing, environmental protection and land use.

The forums will run 5-9 pm. The dates and locations of the forums are:

- Monday, Aug. 5 at The Depot, One Depot Square, Woonsocket, RI

- Tuesday, Aug. 6 at Roger Williams University, Global Heritage Hall, 1 Old Ferry Road, Bristol, RI

- Wednesday, Aug. 7 at University of Rhode Island, Memorial Student Union, 45 Upper College Road, Kingston, RI.

- Thursday, Aug. 8, East Providence Senior Center, 610 Waterman Ave., East Providence, RI.

here's he chort course for the governor. Interview the people who have left RI due to the poor business climate, low paying jobs, inability to have their children live in state for lack of opportunity, high taxes, decaying infrastructure and over regulation of evrything needed to have economic and personal freedom.

Or he can just stand on the border with Mass and stop random cars following movng vans north
