Moving Truck in Providence Home of Secretary of Commerce Raimondo
Sunday 13 June 2021
A moving truck – and movers – was at the home of US Secretary of Commerce Gina Raimondo on the East Side on Saturday.
The former governor of Rhode Island has divided his time between Washington, DC and Providence since joining the cabinet of US President Joe Biden on March 2.
The Morris Avenue house where Raimondo lived with her husband and two children is valued at $ 1.3 million by Zillow. They bought the house for $ 471,500 in 2013.

Raimondo and his family also have a second home in South County.
First elected as Rhode Island’s first female governor in 2014, Raimondo won it a second time in 2018.
“I love Rhode Island and I am ready to continue working with you to bring about the change people need and deserve,” Raimondo said as he announced his candidacy for re-election in May 2018.
His departure before serving a full second term saw the rise of the then lieutenant. Governor Dan McKee now serves as Governor.

Recently, Raimondo allegedly took advantage of a “little-known” federal law to avoid “huge taxes”, according to reports.
“Members of President Biden’s cabinet are able to pay taxes when they divest their assets to avoid conflicts of interest when entering public service, thanks to a little-known provision in federal law,” he said. Fox News reported last week.
“Under section 2634 of the Federal Election Law there is a unique provision to help mitigate the financial blow to new administration officials who suddenly sell assets: divestiture certificates,” they continued.
