He said he would do it and he is trying. Providence Mayor Jorge Elorza has joined a group of mayors who want to guarantee an income for people doing nothing. For Elorza, it is a chance to fulfill his promise of paying slave reparations in an effort to appeal to Black voters in his bid to be Governor in 2022. It is bad enough the number of people who have jobs with the city and are basically paid for doing next to nothing, but this is another level. A guaranteed income promise from a mayor with no money, no business moving into the city, a pandemic, schools taken away from him, and a downtown still reeling from the June riot. Sounds like a good time to start handing out money.
