Firefighters protest at Raimondo fundraiser

Posted: Updated:

Union firefighters protested Thursday night outside a downtown Providence restaurant where state General Treasurer Gina Raimondo was holding a fundraiser.

Raimondo was the architect of a state pension reform plan in 2011 that is now being hashed out in court-ordered mediation.

Raimondo, a Democrat, is widely expected to run for governor in 2014.  She's held an event at about 5:30 p.m. Thursday at the Dorrance Restaurant.

About 100 firefighters with signs protested behind barricades across the street.  The firefighters jeered as people went into the restaurant, but the protest was otherwise orderly.
