State Representative Joseph Shekarchi, who still has more than $82,000 in his campaign account after aggressively raising money during his rep run last year, is keeping a close eye on City Hall in Warwick.
The freshman Democrat from Warwick says he'd "absolutely" consider seeking the mayor's office if incumbent Scott Avedisian doesn't seek a ninth term in 2014.
The head of the Rhode Island Public Transit Authority is out five months after he was placed on paid administrative leave for undisclosed reasons.
Charles Odimgbe has severed his relationship with RIPTA, according to a tersely written press release issued by the transit authority’s board. The decision to end his employment was mutual, according to the statement.
Warwick Mayor Scott Avedisian, Cranston Mayor Allan Fung and 2012 CD1 candidate Brendan Doherty are keeping their lines of communication open as the three Republicans consider their possible moves for 2014.
