WASHINGTON -- President Obama will travel to Providence on Oct. 25 to raise money for Democratic candidates and a $7,500-a-head dinner at 5:30 p.m. in the Orchard Avenue home of Arnold "Buff'' Chace Jr. and Johnnie Chace in Providence.

We need to ask President Obama why New Bedford, Massachusetts was selected as the New England center for commercial wind turbine installations instead of Quonset Point, Rhode Island. How does the federal government justify spending 635 million just to locate in Massachusetts at a location in New Bedford where the ownership of the land is not even clear?

Quonset Point is already built and ready to go as an old army-navy base with an ocean port. The New Bedford site needs 35 million to construct a site and the federal government is giving the Nantucket Wind people 600 million in stimulus funds to locate in New Bedford rather than Quonset Point! This is a total of 635 million to put the site in New Bedford

Is this political patronage for Gov Patrick?
