To the editor:
I’ve been asked why I, as a newly elected Democratic councilman, would support Republican Mary Parella for chair of the council.
On November 6th Mary Parella won more votes, the confidence of more Bristolians, than any other candidate for council.
Mary Parella’s years of experience on the Bristol Town Council and representing Bristol in the RI Senate have prepared her well to lead the council.
I nominated my party mate, Edward P. Stuart Jr., to be the vice chair.
As always, if you wish to talk or bring something to my attention, my phone number is (401) 489-0972
