    Excellent summary of Pell’s background and qualifications.
    He is a RI lawyer with Military Service who also served at the AG’s office.
    What are Gina’s qualifications..?
    It appears she is Not a member of the RI Bar.
    She may be a lawyer in some other state but that hasn’t been mentioned.

  2. Jim Jackson says:

    What only RI based lawyers are qualified for political office here?

    How many cases has he been involved in here in Rhode Island? Criminal, civil? How many has he won and how many has he lost?

    How many Statewide positions of leadership has he had?

    He apparently can’t hold a job for more than a year.

  3. B says:

    Nesi’s column indicates that Pell had Four Years of Active Military Service.
    That is a full time job that he held for four years.
