20 CAMPAIGN TRAIL OCTOBER 15-21, 2020 | VALLEY BREEZE | NORTH SMITHFIELD BLACKSTONE WOONSOCKET EDITION Osier promotes qualifications, experience NORTH SMITHFIELD – Councilor Douglas Osier says he has the education and experience to provide solutions that strike a balance and "offer principled leadership alongside an exceptional public service record." Osier served as co-chairman on the Budget Committee prior to the council. He holds degrees in finance and economics from Stonehill College and a master's in business administration in leader- ship. He's a manager of business intelligence. Osier said he was the only councilor who voted against the final development agreement for Green Development's project on Iron Mine Hill Road. "Renewables offer needed energy sources, but not at the expense of our rural landscape, property values or resident's quality of life." With an open door policy, Osier said he remains fiscally responsible while supporting schools, improving infrastructure and acquiring open space. "We must utilize a collaborative, strategic, data- Zwolenski highlights experience NORTH SMITHFIELD – Paul Zwolenski said this week that the position of town administra- tor requires experience and is not a position that allows for on-the-job training. "The experience and knowledge I have gained over the past 26 years of continuous service has prepared me for everyday operations and to effec- tively and efficiently address complex situations as we keep our town moving forward," he said. "My experience has been gained from serving on numerous boards, committees, commissions and the Town Council. In addition to experience, having the knowledge of our town's history and the many contributions our residents, educators, town workers, businesses and volunteers made to our town is instrumental to building consensus. Experience, knowledge and building consensus will be the foundation of my administration. I humbly ask for your support and vote so I can represent you in our town and throughout our state." Brien looks to brewery industry to spur development WOONSOCKET – Jon Brien said he's heard so many people say that "you don't come to Woonsocket unless you live here, work here or know someone here." As mayor, he said, "I will work to change the negative attitude that the rest of the state has toward the city of Woonsocket. Woonsocket has the infrastructure and empty mill buildings that are needed to recruit the multimillion dollar micro- brewery industry to our city." All anyone has to do is look at Pawtucket to real- ize Woonsocket's potential, he said. In 2019, more than 135,000 people went to Pawtucket's micro- breweries, achieving approximately $4.5 million in beer and spirits sales alone across six businesses. "In order to create a city that people want to visit, we need a mayor who is capable of working collaboratively with other elected officials to make this a reality for Woonsocket," he said. TOWN ADMINISTRATOR driven approach," he said. He pledged to listen to all sides, remain objective and advocate for residents. WOONSOCKET MAYOR CITY COUNCIL Mancieri and team pledges collaboration WOONSOCKET – Garrett Mancieri said the third promise his team, including Margaux Morisseau and David Soucy, will pledge as city councilors is a commitment to collaboration. "We will not allow political or ideological agen- das to be an impediment to improvement," he said. "We may not always agree on the issues, but we will not engage in petty political attacks, games- manship or grandstanding. We will treat our con- stituents and other elected officials with the same level of respect." Mancieri said legislation, ordinances and budgets will be drafted, discussed and voted on at council meetings and not behind the scenes and the team will conduct the city's business in the professional manner that citizens deserve. "In order to build consensus, we must have disagreement without disrespect," he said. Woonsocket has much opportunity to be a great community, "and with the right leadership all working towards the same goals, we will succeed and make our city better for everyone." Morisseau promises civil communication WOONSOCKET – Margaux Morisseau said the second promise her team, including David Soucy and Garrett Mancieri, will make to voters is a com- mitment to civil communication.
