“I was deeply saddened to learn this morning about the passing of former Providence Mayor, Vincent ‘Buddy’ Cianci. Rhode Island has lost an iconic public figure.
"Today is a sad day as our city mourns the loss of its longest-serving mayor,” said Council President Luis Aponte. “We extend our deepest sympathies to his family and friends. Mayor Cianci’s shadow looms large over the City of Providence. His brilliant mind, charisma, passion, and love for Providence are woven into his legacy."
At tonight’s City Council meeting, a resolution to name one of Rhode Island’s most revered athletic facilities in honor of the councilman who championed its creation will be referred to committee for further consideration.
Following two consecutive nights of violent activity in the Wanskuck area, Councilman David A. Salvatore (Ward 14) has asked the Providence Police Department to strengthen its presence in the neighborhood.
