Pres. Don—For Boston.
Dan McGowan has been fascinated with Providence politics since moving here after college. He initially started a free blog about local issues which eventually turned into his current position with Dan covers Providence politics as well as statewide education issues in the traditional fashion of a beat reporter rather than a reporter whose primary focus is content for the evening newscast. His stories often take more time to develop and he appreciates the support he gets from the station to follow these stories to fruition.
Often, Dan finds himself as the only party in a council meeting that does not represent a constituency or slanted point of view. He believes that he can be the eyes and ears of the public through his reporting and sees this as an important service being provided. He shared a New England Emmy with four WPRI colleagues for a story about a state representative who did not live in the district he was elected to serve. 
After his planned remarks, Dan engaged in a lively question and answer session touching on subjects ranging from the recent political protests in Charlottesville, VA and Boston to the type of information found on politicians’ financial disclosure forms.
