Letter: Appreciate input from constituents

Posted

To the editor:
I would like to take a moment to thank all the Ward 4 residents who joined myself, Mayor DaSilva and Council President Rodericks in discussing projects happening in Riverside and citywide issues in general. I firmly believe the more we actually talk and listen to each other the more we understand each other and that helps us make decisions that move the city forward on a positive, productive course.

Some issues we discussed include:

  • Converting the boat ramp at Sabin Point into a Kayak launch
  • The Crescent Park projects regarding a new concession building and event tent
  • Converting the former Oldham School building into an entrepreneurial incubator

I find it invaluable to talk with my fellow Townies on issues like this and my intent is to hold these types of meetings quarterly.
If you would like to talk my email is ward4council@eastprovidenceri.gov.

I welcome feedback and really want to hear from you regarding these items as well as the proposed Community Center.
Representative government works best when we actually talk and listen to each other.

Rick Lawson
Ward 4 City Councilman
