New City Officials to Be Sworn In

The new East Providence City Council and School Committee will be inaugurated on Monday, Dec. 3, in a ceremony in City Hall.

You are invited to the Inauguration Ceremony for the new East Providence City Council and the new East Providence School Committee.

The ceremony will be held on Monday evening, Dec. 3, in the City Hall at 145 Taunton Ave., said City Clerk Kim Casci. It will start at 7 pm in the Council Chambers just inside the front doors on the first floor.

The Honorable Maureen McKenna Goldberg, a Rhode Island Supreme Court Justice, will swear in the newly-elected city officials, said Casci. A reception will immediately follow in the lobby of City Hall.

The new City Councilors include four newcomers: James Briden in Ward 1, Helder Cunha in Ward 2, Christine Rossi in Ward 4, and Tracy Ann Capobianco in the At-Large seat. Current Assistant Mayor Thomas Rose Jr. in Ward 3 is the only returning member of the council.

Good luck to all the new-comers and Councilman Rose. Putting you name and life out there for intense public and media scrutiny is not sometimes pleasant. We should all get behind you to make good common sense decisions irrespective of personalities and politics. Good luck.

Good luck to the newly elected council people, and you also Mr. Rose. We shall be watching to see if promises made are kept, from this new council. Will the City Charter continued to be violated???
