PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - Much of Gov.-elect Gina Raimondo’s transition policy summit set for Dec. 16 will be behind closed doors.

Jonathan Duffy, co-chairman of Raimondo’s transition team, told The Providence Journal (https://bit.ly/12mglEv ) that the intent is for people to be open and forthcoming “and we don’t want anyone grandstanding.”

The media will be permitted to report the opening of the meeting with Raimondo’s introduction.

After Raimondo’s remarks, Duffy said participants will discuss five topics that Raimondo identified in her Jobs Plan during the campaign, which were manufacturing, work-force development, infrastructure, tourism and hospitality and small business and business startups.

The Providence Journal asked to attend the summit to report on the group’s priorities and has asked for a list of invited participants.

Raimondo’s staff has not yet released the names of participants.
