Who’s the next mayor of Providence, Part II
A few updates since we last month floated 16 names to consider for the 2014 Providence mayoral race (assuming Angel Taveras runs for another office).
Buddy Cianci made our original list, and Scott has the chatter touting a third Cianci comeback.
Meanwhile, we overlooked Providence councilman John Igliozzi in our initial roundup. Igliozzi now tells Dan McGowan that a run for an unspecified different office might be in his future.
From our initial list, the other top potential candidates include City Council President Michael Solomon, and perhaps former mayor Joseph R. Paolino Jr. and state Representative Christopher Blazejewski.
