Pawtucket Mayor Pushing More Transparency in 2013

Tuesday, December 25, 2012

 

Pawtucket Mayor Donald Grebien has announced that his administration is seeking letters of interest and availability from city residents who wish to serve on one of the numerous boards and commissions.

“Encouraging participation in our city government by residents throughout our diverse community will always be a high priority of my administration,” Grebien said. “As part of my transparency pledge, I would like to hear from everyone who would like the opportunity to serve on one of our boards or commissions.”

A full list of the boards and commissions is available on the city’s Web site at http://www.pawtucketri.com. Anyone who wishes to serve is required to be a Pawtucket resident and at least 18 years of age. All appointments are subject to available openings. Submissions should be received by Friday, Jan. 18, 2013.

Letters with a background resume should be mailed to the Mayor’s Office, Pawtucket City Hall, 137 Roosevelt Avenue, Pawtucket, Rhode Island, 02860 or sent by email to lvargas@pawtucketri.com. In the body of the letter please state on which board or commission you would like to serve and your general availability.

Information sent by anyone who has previously submitted to serve remains on file for consideration and does not have to re-submitted unless they wish to update their resume or the boards and commissions on which they would like to serve.

“Public service allows all our residents the opportunity to play an important role in shaping the future of their city. Our boards should reflect the diversity of our community – by culture, gender and every other measure – to the greatest extent possible, and I encourage everyone’s involvement,” Grebien said.
