Governor Gina M. Raimondo is directing Rhode Island flags at all state agencies and buildings to be flown at half-staff on Monday, December 9, 2019 in memory of former Rhode Island Superior Court Presiding Justice Joseph F. Rodgers Jr. The flags will remain at half-staff until sunset tomorrow, December 10, the date of his internment.
"Justice Joseph F. Rodgers Jr., our state's youngest-ever statewide justice, worked tirelessly over his 35 years on the bench to ensure that our court system works for its citizens.," said Governor Gina M. Raimondo. "His legacy of judicial excellence will continue on through his daughter, Justice Kristin E. Rodgers. My thoughts are with his loved ones during this difficult time.”
Raimondo also asks Rhode Islanders to lower their flags to half-staff as a mark of respect.
**When flown at half-staff or half-mast, the U.S. flag should be hoisted first to the peak for an instant and then lowered to the half-staff or half-mast position. The flag should again be raised to the peak before it is lowered for the day.
