In a session full of pomp, circumstance, family and friends, the members of the 2013-14 General Assembly convene for the first time.

On Tuesday, Secretary of State A. Ralph Mollis administered the oath of office to the 75 House members and 38 Senators.

House Speaker Gordon D. Fox and Senate President M. Teresa Paiva Weed were reelected to their leadership roles. 

Representing Middletown constituents, Rep. Linda Finn, Rep. Marvin L. Abney, Rep Deborah L. Ruggiero and State Senator Louis DiPalma were formally sworn in as part of the ceremony.

How fitting, the last three comments by the three amigos-Dan Gordon, Joe Sousa, and Jack Baillargeron. Thank goodnss Gordon and Sousa were voted out of office, and Baillargeron is too stupid to run.

Perhaps the state of Rhode Island could save some money by firing all of those legislators. Does one city have to have so many representatives? Big Government in "Little Rhody" does not make a whole lot of sense.
