Follow-up on Mayor Jim Briden:
I wish to follow up on last month’s issue in the East Providence Reporter on the subject of a Ceremonial Mayor. Actions do speak louder than words.
I had the occasion to contact Mayor Jim Briden on a matter that was important to me via Email. He quickly responded letting me know he received my message. He later replied to inform me he contacted city officials and in turn the proper city officials attended to my concern.
As you know, Mayor Briden also encouraged residents to dwell more on positive stories in that article. I can attest that Mayor Briden is more than a ceremonial mayor. He takes his position seriously and we should all appreciate that fact.
