Distinguished visitor


Green Airport terminal came to standstill Wednesday – its gates empty of incoming or outgoing flights – as Vice President Kamala Harris paid a visit to Rhode Island. According to a schedule released by the RI Democratic Party her visit included her participation with former Gov. Gina Raimondo, now Secretary of Commerce, in a women-led small business roundtable. And while she landed in Warwick, Mayor Frank Picozzi was not among those to greet her. Picozzi said Wednesday he learned of the visit from Col. Brad Connor who had been notified for security reasons, but never heard directly anything from Washington. The word spread, however, and about a dozen people gathered along Airport Road to get photos of her plane arriving and as the Vice President and her company disembarked. (Warwick Beacon photos)
