PROVIDENCE, RI – Lt. Governor Dan McKee issued the following statement on the Paw Sox move to Worcester:
"The departure of the Paw Sox marks a missed opportunity for economic development in the Blackstone Valley. I have great respect and admiration for Mayor Grebien and the local leaders who fought tirelessly for a city they love and a cause they knew was important to all Rhode Islanders. I was proud to stand with them in this fight. Now, I am calling on state leaders to join me in committing to invest in the City of Pawtucket to jump-start the economic revitalization this community deserves."
