NEW: Cranston Restaurateur Brady Slated to be Appointed to City Council
Monday, June 11, 2018
According to posts by Cranston City Council President Michael Farina and Brady, the agenda for a special meeting of the Council on Monday, June 11, has Farina appointing Brady to the position, following the resignation of Councilman Trent Colford.
"So proud to appoint great community leader and a person of great character to the Cranston City Council. He is a person who I know will lead with the interests of the people in mind. Congratulations Edward Brady," said Farina in a Facebook post on Sunday.
Cranston Mayor -- and GOP gubernatorial candidate Allan Fung -- weighed in on Sunday night.
"I think Ed's a fantastic person to represent Ward 4," said Fung. "Not only is he a true blue Cranstonian, he's a great business person -- and someone who's always given back to the community, whether it's been the Cranston West Alumni Association, or the Dream Center, and more."
"Colford was a great business advocate," said Fung, who noted that Colford stepped down due to a fire at his house -- and subsequently moving to South County.
Brady appeared on GoLocal LIVE in April to discuss his restaurants. As GoLocal wrote:
