Governor Raimondo will mark the start of the Christmas season Wednesday evening at the State House with the annual lighting of the state's Christmas tree. This year's tree is an 18-foot artificial one from the company Balsam Hill, costing $6,500, and could potentially be used for years to come. How do you feel about the state using an artificial tree in place of a real, locally-sourced one?
