PAWTUCKET EDITION | VALLEY BREEZE | DECEMBER 5-11, 2018 PAWTUCKET 9 During the conversa- tion with CommerceRI officials, "the city made its position clear and we are confident Commerce, who has the lead on this, will work with Hasbro to main- tain and enhance their presence in Pawtucket," said Grebien. Providence Business News reported last week that the three state leaders are planning to meet Dec. 11 to discuss how to respond to Hasbro considering a move of its corporate headquarters from Newport Avenue in Pawtucket to somewhere else. The company has not ruled out modernizing its current location. Mattiello spokesman Larry Berman told PBN that the three will be strat- egizing how to proceed. The three are expected to discuss whether the state should offer Hasbro incen- tives to keep its headquar- ters in Pawtucket or within Rhode Island. Grebien and his team have said that it's impor- tant for the state to help keep this important com- pany in Pawtucket, but the city is limited in what it can offer on its own.
