Raimondo Directs Rhode Island Flags to Fly at Half-Staff in Honor of Former First Lady Sue Carcieri

11/15/2018
PROVIDENCE, R.I. - Governor Gina M. Raimondo is directing Rhode Island flags at all state agencies and buildings to be flown at half-staff in honor of former Rhode Island First Lady Sue Carcieri. Flags will remain lowered until sunset on the day of interment.

"Sue Carcieri was a smart, passionate and caring First Lady who served Rhode Island with grace and dignity," said Governor Gina M. Raimondo. "She was deeply dedicated to causes that moved her, fighting for breast cancer awareness and heating assistance for Rhode Islanders in need. Andy and I are keeping her loved ones, particularly Governor Carcieri and their children, in our prayers during this difficult time."

Raimondo also asks Rhode Islanders to lower their flags to half-staff as a mark of respect.
