PROVIDENCE – Rep. Maria Cimini, D-Providence, scored the highest mark in the General Assembly on the 2012 Common Cause Legislative Scorecard.
Cimini, who is serving her first term in the House, received a final score of 85 on the grassroots organization’s 10th biennial tally. The score is based on a two-year voting record of legislators on a number of government-reform issues pushed by Common Cause.
Common Cause tracked 48 votes during the 2011 and 2012 sessions, among them campaigns and elections, judicial reform, ethics, open government and separation of powers.
“I appreciate honest, open government and I believe my constituents do too,” she said.
