So as you may or may not have heard, former Mayor of Providence Vincent A. “Buddy” Cianci passed away recently.
Flags in the city and on the state house are being flown at half staff.
More interestingly the former Mayor, longest serving at 20 years will lie in repose in front of the Mayor’s office on February 6th and 7th.
Love him or hate him – he was one of the biggest cheerleaders that Providence ever had. And the recent crop of Mayors, the only thing I can say for them is they love revenue generating things.
