Cranston Mayor and gubernatorial candidate Allan W. Fung told Rhode Island Public Radio this week that he'd consider privatizing RIPTA and other state agenices.
"You can take a look at RIPTA -- can we do it better just strictly as a private-sector solution?" Fung told RIPR in a bonus Q+A. "Take a look at Resource Recovery," the quasi-public entity that runs the state landfill in Johnston, "take a look at a lot of different areas within our budget, some of where our dollars are going, to try to fix where government is providing services and if possible, get out of providing government services."
Fung also said he'd be willing to debate Ken Block, who is also seeking the Republican nomination for Governor, but he's not sure how many time's he'd be willing to square off.
