And yes, guess who is a significant corporate sponsor … Play Along Folks … Bueller? Bueller?

None Other Than Deloitte Digital. Sound familiar? Yes, You are correct. Deloitte Digital operates under the same corporate umbrella that brought you … Are You Ready? UHIP!!  Remember back to those innocent pre Covid days, where the spectacle of thousands of Rhode Islanders standing in the freezing rain for their assistance money generated well deserved outrage?

As Reported By Susan Campbell of WPRI Channel 12 news:

“We fully realize that our public sector work impacts the lives of individuals and families, often when they are most vulnerable,” said Deborah Sills, of Deloitte Consulting’s public sector practice. “We are very sorry for the impact that our system issues have had on your constituents, on state workers, and on service providers.”

But time, as they say, heals all political wounds. Incredibly, this is not her first sponsored gig by Deloitte. In 2017, as reported by GoLocalProv, Governor Raimondo attended the “Girls Who Code” Panel at the 2017 Female Governors Summit .

This is different. Rhode Islanders are dying. The Governor has reintroduced draconian rules aimed at stemming the Virus, crushing the small business community. By expert accounts, 1 in 4 Rhode Islanders suffer from “Food Insecurity” a 21rst Century euphemism for malnutrition. A Field Hospital was opened today to absorb patients in recovery from COVID, to attempt to free up critical care facilities for patients requiring ICU level medical support.

Governor Raimondo: It is time to set the political aside. Promoting the narrow interest of potential corporate donors? A quick paycheck? Sponsored by a Corporate Player who profited mightily at the expense of Rhode Island’s disenfranchised? Enough.

The Coalition has reached out to Governor Raimondo’s Office to determine/understand the form of compensation, as well as an understanding of the relationship between Salesforce, Deloitte, & Governor Raimondo. We await their response.
