Bob Healey has been running for Governor and Lieutenant Governor of RI on the Cool Moose Party ticket since before I moved here. Lt. Gov. of this tiny state is the perfect post for a somewhat absurdist protest candidate, since it is pretty much unnecessary. His platform?
If elected, I will serve as the Lt. Governor without pay or staff, returning $1 million to the taxpayers. I will perform all the constitutional duties of the Lt. Governor’s office.
Given the overall tenor of this cycle, Healey is within striking distance of Democrat Elizabeth Roberts. He's got my vote.
