So I (well, not I, it’s from the email list, not a personal message) get this email from the Mayor:
Dear friends of Providence,
Today I made a decision that will allow me to place all of my focus and energy on protecting the gains we’ve made in Providence and seeing our city through the current economic crisis. I hope you will take a few minutes to view the linked video I made to share my belief in the importance of moving Providence forward during this critical time and some of my hopes for the future.
David N. Cicilline
OK, I’m concerned with my city, I have 4 minutes to watch a YouTube and see what the Mayor is up to, so here it is:
So, OK. Yay, I guess. But what exactly was this decision he made? I guess he’s running for re-election, but he never actually said, “today I announce my intention to run for re-election as the Mayor of the great city of Providence.” He said he’s done a bunch of wonderful things over the last 6 years. The 195 land will be fun to develop. He wants to take a ride on some crazy new streetcar thing-a-ma-bobs… Am I missing something?
