Seth Magaziner is one of two Democrats running for state treasurer. On Monday, we heard from former treasurer Frank Caprio, who’s trying to regain his old job. At age 31, Magaziner might be a first-time candidate, but he’s no stranger to politics; his father, Ira Magaziner, was a top aide in the Clinton White House, and Bill Clinton is coming to campaign for Magaziner later this month. As part of our Rhody Votes coverage of the 2014 election, Magaziner tells Rhode Island Public Radio political reporter Ian Donnis he thinks the treasurer’s office can help to bolster Rhode Island’s economy.
