Democratic Rhode Island Rep. David Cicilline has announced he will be resigning from Congress and cashing in with a nonprofit group at the end of May.
He said: “For more than a decade, the people of Rhode Island entrusted me with a sacred duty to represent them in Congress.
“It is a responsibility I put my heart and soul into every day to make life better for the residents and families of our state.
“The chance to lead the Rhode Island Foundation was unexpected.
“But it is an extraordinary opportunity to have an even more direct and meaningful impact on the lives of residents of our state.
“The same energy and commitment I brought to elected office I will now bring as CEO of the Rhode Island Foundation, advancing their mission to ensure all Rhode Islanders can achieve economic security, access quality, affordable healthcare, and attain the education and training that will set them on a path to prosperity.”
Cicilline earned $174,000 annually as a congressman.
He will bring in $650,000 a year as the head of the foundation.
