It is becoming clearer by the day, in my humble opinion, that it seems someone in Rhode Island wants Providence to fail.
The tag team effort that we have been seeing to keep Buddy Cianci from once again becoming Mayor of the Rhode Island capital is not only disgraceful but it is also a clear example of how our state has become so entwined in dishonesty and backroom deals.
Let’s take Jorge Elorza and his outrages comments to start with. He keeps pounding on Buddy’s so-called “criminal past” and that we cannot go back to that for Providence’s future.
First Mr. Elorza may I remind you that Buddy was charged and acquitted of 11 charges and the one charge that they convicted him on, the conspiracy charge, many believe was a hail Mary pass because someone wanted to “Get Buddy”.
The man served his time gracefully and paid the price for the sins he was accused of. What about the fact that the State Police sat with you to discuss voter fraud in the primary? You yourself know what it is like to make a wrong decision in your past.
The fact of the matter is this… we have seen raids on the State House by the FBI, corruption and very questionable conduct by State Representatives and who knows how deep the 38 Studios tentacles reach into the state’s government.
There is no denying that Providence, once considered to be a crime ridden slum, was brought back to life, made safe to work and shop and a made to be shining star in Rhode Island under the guidance of Mayor Cianci.
I for one would like to see that happen again. I truly believe that with Buddy at the helm Providence will once again be a booming family friendly city that we can be proud of. History speaks for itself. He has the talent, he has the smarts and he has proven he can do it.
The one lingering question is… who doesn’t want it to happen?
