Will he run?
Should he enter the race, most are convinced that Buddy Cianci would hold the key to City Hall come November. But as we enter the summer months, there has been no official word confirming his candidacy. So operating under the assumption that Cianci skips this election, who would you like to see take the reins to the Creative Capital?
Is it current City Council President Michael Solomon? Or how about the Dem's rising star, Brett Smiley? Former Housing Court Judge Jorge Elorza is certainly making some noise. So is the former chairman of the former state Board of Governors for Higher Education, Lorne Adrain. And you can't discount the sole GOP candidate, psychiatrist Dr. Daniel Harrop.
So Providence, who is your next mayor?
