|       As Mayor, I am inspired every day by the resiliency, commitment, and hard work of the people of our great city. No matter whether from the South Side or the North End, residents from every corner of Providence contribute to the cultural, artistic, and economic fabric that makes the capital city so vibrant and welcoming. To celebrate these contributions and to support the future of the Creative Capital, I invite you to join us at 2:30pm tomorrow, May 18, 2017, at the State House for the One Providence Day celebration.   The event will serve as an opportunity for Providence advocates and supporters to come out and celebrate our world-class cuisine, artistry, and business community. Attendees will be able to speak to local business owners, city and state officials, and community leaders about how we can keep our city marching forward together. It will also be an opportunity to learn more about legislation that will benefit and strengthen Providence.   Your help and input is important in this because a resilient Providence means a stronger Rhode Island for everyone.  Priorities for the City include legislation that makes crucial investments in our children and schools; supports our financial success over the long term; and makes us more competitive with other cities.   In Providence we are all in for education and that means we support legislation that will ensure that school districts receive permanent funding for English Language Learners (S-0690, H-5751). This type of funding is vital considering the diversity of our student body. It has already had an impact as it supported our recently opened newcomer center that serves immigrant and refugee students. We are also in support of legislation that will help build a solid foundation for families by providing high quality and innovative early childhood education (S-0732, H-5498).   With our long-term success in mind, my administration supports legislation that creates a new public authority that is able to purchase, lease, or enter into management agreements with local water suppliers (S-810, H-6122). This will allow communities the opportunity to asses if regionalization is right for them. Ultimately, Providence Water cannot continue to operate as a city department that provides water for a majority of state residents. State and municipal leaders will also be able to use the authority to ensure that all of Rhode Island has access to reliable, clean drinking water that they deserve.   Additionally, we are in support of legislation that proposes to create new sources of revenue for Providence and fellow cities and towns. The truth is that the more that Providence can access new sources of revenue, the less we will have to depend on residents and businesses who already carry a heavy burden. For that reason we support changing the hotel occupancy tax to a rate that is competitive with other cities in New England (S-689, H-5771). The City also supports legislation that will require universities, colleges and hospitals to pay property tax on parking lots, vacant land, and property being used for non-charitable purposes (S-691, H-5754). While our institutions are an important part of our city’s fabric, Providence cannot continue to subsidize their non-essential property.   Once again, please join me and folks from throughout Providence at the State House to be a powerful champion for our city tomorrow, May 18, 2017 at 2:30PM. This event is completely free and open to the public. To get more information please call my Center for City Services by dialing 3-1-1.  |
