Solomon, Capellan up with Campaign Web Sites for 2014
Two of the candidates hoping to succeed Angel Taveras as mayor of Providence have posted Web sites to offer visibility, attract supporters, and raise money.
Council President Michael Solomon's site is called Mike for Providence.
Capellan, an educator in Central Falls and veteran of Providence politics, is a bit more oblique with his eponymous site (although not so much with a background shot of the Providence skyline, including the now-vacant Superman Building).
Solomon and Capellan both say they will run for mayor next year if Taveras seeks another office. An array of other potential candidates could also be in the mix.
Solomon has a big edge in fundraising, dating back to last December, and his war chest is set to grow with a fundraiser Tuesday evening at Roger Williams Park Casino.
