BRIEF: PolitiFact R.I. rules Bennett claim on T. F. Green Airport numbers Pants on Fire
Jan 10, 2013 (The Providence Journal - McClatchy-Tribune Information Services via COMTEX) --
PROVIDENCE, R.I. -- To demonstrate that progress has been made in Rhode Island during his first two years in office, Gov. Lincoln Chafee released a YouTube video on Jan. 1 that featured various officials talking about economic development, education and regulatory reform.
One of them was James Bennett, Providence's director of economic development. On the video, he talks about how Chafee has helped lower costs for airlines, making it less expensive for people to fly in and out of T.F. Green Airport. "Our numbers are going up at the airport," he said.
PolitiFact Rhode Island examined Bennett's claim and ruled it Pants on Fire. Read the complete analysis here.
