Raimondo To Be Inaugurated State’s First Female Governor
Gina Raimondo will be sworn in as Rhode Island's first female governor in a ceremony outside the Statehouse.
Tuesday's inaugural will be at noon on the south portico.
The ceremony will include a 19-gun salute, music by the Rhode Island National Guard's 88th Army Band and the Pledge of Allegiance, led by the Cumberland Little League team that competed in the 2014 Little League World Series.
It is open to the public.
Raimondo served as the state treasurer. She has pledged to be the "jobs governor." She wants to oversee a resurgence of manufacturing and invest in areas where the state already has competitive advantages, such as tourism.
Also being inaugurated are Lt. Gov. Dan McKee, Secretary of State Nellie Gorbea, General Treasurer Seth Magaziner and Attorney General Peter Kilmartin.
