Donald Carcieri Biografía

ENG:   Donald L. "Don" Carcieri (born December 16, 1942) was the 73rd Governor of the U.S. state of Rhode Island. Carcieri has had a varied vocational background, having worked as a manufacturing company executive, aid relief worker, bank executive and teacher.

 

Personal background

Carcieri was born and raised in East Greenwich, Rhode Island, the son of Marguerite E. (née Anderson) and Nicola J. Carcieri, a football and basketball coach at East Greenwich High School. His father was Italian American and his mother Swedish American. Carcieri played baseball, basketball, and football while in high school and received a college scholarship. He graduated from Brown University with a degree in International Relations. Carcieri started his career as a high school math teacher, working in Newport, Rhode Island and Concord, Massachusetts. He later became a banker and businessman, working his way up the ranks to become an executive vice president at Old Stone Bank.

In 1981, Carcieri and his family moved to Kingston, Jamaica, where he worked for Catholic Relief Services. Two years later, he returned to Rhode Island and became an executive at the Cookson Group. He eventually became Joint Managing Director for Cookson and CEO of the company's Cookson America subsidiary. At the request of Carcieri, Cookson established their US headquarters in an unused building in downtown Providence. He has 4 children and 14 grandchildren.

 

2009 furlough controversy

In the fiscal year 2010, the state of Rhode Island is facing a budget shortfall of $528 million. In an effort to shed $67.8 million, Governor Carcieri imposed 12 furlough days. The first unpaid day was to occur on Friday, September 5, 2009. The unions representing state workers was able to, in the 11th hour, have a restraining order issued by Supreme Court Justice Maureen McKenna Goldberg with a full court hearing on the matter to occur on September 12. Almost immediately Governor Carcieri issued a press release noting he now has no other option but layoffs. He further went on to say "It should greatly disturb every state employee and every Rhode Islander that labor leaders are willing to sacrifice people’s jobs so they can maintain their stranglehold on the citizens of this state."

 

2010 Historical Floods

On March 31, 2010 unprecedented rains hit Rhode Island. The entire state was declared a disaster area by President Obama and the Department of Homeland Security.
