Change the Way We Do Business in RI, York Says (posted January 27, 2002)
It is time to "change the way we do business in Rhode Island," according to Democratic gubernatorial candidate Myrth York. Appearing on the WJAR-TV show "10 News Conference", York indicated she had a good chance to be governor despite two previous losing attempts because the economy is different and she has experience as a businesswoman which will help her lead the state. "We need to stream-line government," she said, even if it "involves having fewer public employees."

The interview was part of York's "39 towns in 9 days" campaign kick-off. On Tuesday, she announced she was running for governor and since then she has visited different cities and towns around the state to take her message to voters.

When asked how she would handle the Providence school conflict between the teacher's union and the school administration, York said, "I would get tough with everyone." Copyright 2000Karen Martin Media Services
