The citizens of Providence will soon elect a new Mayor. It’s a rare opportunity to rethink a lot of things. Being Mayor is a job. You are not just a voter: you are a hiring manager. And, we really need to find the right person for this gig.
Meet the Uncaucus.
The Uncaucus will encourage a citizen-led search to hire a Mayor who will help us build a stronger city. Over the next nine months the Uncaucus will:
- Challenge Assumptions about the Mayoral Job
- Invite Candidates to Apply
- Share Information from the Campaign Trail
- Encourage Civic Participation
- Increase Odds that We’ll Hire the Right Person
The Uncaucus has posted this job description to challenge assumptions about what it means to be Mayor, get more citizens involved in the hiring process and encourage new candidates to step forward.
Greater City Providence will be survey the candidates for Governor, Mayor, contested City Council seats, and Congressional District 1 and we need your help compiling a list of questions. Submit your candidate questions here.
