We’re excited to have a new writer on the Ocean State Current!
Joanne Giannini, JFK Democrat, served as a Rhode Island state representative from Providence (District 7, Mt. Pleasant/Elmhurst) from 1994 to 2010.
She will be adding her voice to our independent nonpartisan news and commentary wing.
She has previously written commentaries for the Providence Journal, the Federal Hill Gazette, GoLocal Prov, and RI News Review.
The Current’s mission is to leverage online multimedia to ensure that a well-informed public has the breadth of information required for healthy self governance.
During her tenure in the General Assembly, she made appearances on CNN network news, Primetime news, and American Morning regarding legislation she filed in the Ocean State.

We’re always looking to add broader perspectives to the news and conservative commentary that we offer on the Current, so that many Rhode Islanders have a place to express their views. If you, or someone you know, would like to submit work to the Current, please reach out to us.
