6 POLITICS JUNE 24-30, 2020 | VALLEY BREEZE | PAWTUCKET EDITION 6 Moreno pursuing second term PAWTUCKET – Freshman Pawtucket school board member and lifelong resident Roberto Moreno announced that he is seeking re- election to serve a second term on the committee. Moreno, 26, said his first term on the school board was "extremely produc- tive." He serves as co-chairman of the facilities subcommittee and serves on the labor subcommittee and policy subcommittee. Moreno served on the fee negotia- tion team for the procurement of pro- fessional services for the completion of the Pawtucket School Department's RIDE Stage II submission and served on the negotiation team for the pur- chase of the former St. Leo's Church and Rectory. He also serves on the Ad Hoc Panel to Review School Budget Operations as well as the Mayor's Youth Scholarship Commission. During his first term, he toured all 16 Pawtucket public schools with prin- cipals to discuss the academic culture in the district and to get a look at what goes on in classrooms. "My first term on the committee has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my lifetime," he said. "Two years ago, residents showed their confidence in me to advocate for chil- dren and parents. I am asking voters to consider me again this fall. Together, we still have a lot of work to do." Moreno says the work includes an aggressive schedule to revitalize every school in the district. Moreno said in his duties as a pub- lic servant he has also been fortunate enough to help the community, having held a hygiene material drive to aid homeless residents and organized a helmet giveaway that will be resched- uled due to COVID-19. Vitali defending at-large seat PAWTUCKET – Albert Vitali, Jr., incumbent at-large member of the City Council, is announcing his 2020 campaign. The six-term coun- cilman is a lifelong resident and businessman, and he noted that his real estate company has served the city for more than 60 years. Vitali said he is looking forward to continuing to serve the city's multicultural and diverse constitu- ency into the future. He said he has indicated that he will continue to work both independently and in tandem with the current admin- istration and fellow councilors to strengthen Pawtucket's economy, make the city an accommodat- ing business destination, and most importantly, make the city a truly special place to live and raise a family. He said he is eager to continue his work with the Pawtucket School Committee, School Department, and its educators to ensure students are provided with a nourishing and safe environment to learn. He said he hopes to guide the city toward state-of-the-art learning facilities to allow students to achieve academic excellence. Vitali said he is focused on work- ing toward innovative ways to keep taxes affordable and providing the necessary services for his constitu- ency. By attracting outside inves- tors to the city, he said he hopes to strengthen the tax base and grow the city's business sector. "I take my role on the Pawtucket City Council very seriously. I will continue to provide proper over- sight of the administration and always put the needs of the city's residents first," he said.
