video: NEW: Business Leader Grills Cicilline on Providence Budget

Monday, April 18, 2011


Congressman David Cicilline was once again asked today to defend his record as mayor of Providence, in the wake of a report showing that city finances are in shambles.

Cicilline was asked about the issue at a Greater Providence Chamber of Commerce breakfast this morning.

He told moderator Laurie White, the president of the Chamber of Commerce, that the decisions he made as mayor were the right ones. He said the city was hit with steep cuts in state aid and said he did not want to turn to tax increases to make up the difference. Cicilline said he remained proud of his record as mayor and is confidence that he will be judged by his successes as mayor.

He also said he thought voters cared more about jobs and the economy than the budget issues in Providence.
