Serving Pawtucket Breeze THE VALLEY FREE APRIL 11-17, 2018 PAWTUCKET – With at-large City Councilor Sandra Cano set to head to the Rhode Island Statehouse as the new senator in District 8, city voters will now be tasked with find- ing her replacement through the sec- ond special election this year. The race for the at-large seat is already drawing plenty of interest, according to city officials, though no one has officially announced in the race. Registrar Ken McGill said that both former City Council President Henry Kinch Jr., a Democrat, and for- mer independent at-large candidate Rodney Barber have expressed interest in the seat. "A few people have inquired," he said. The results of Democrat Cano's April 3 victory over Republican Nathan Luciano are set to be certified at the state level today, Wednesday, April 11, said McGill, and a date for Cano's swear- ing-in will then be set. The vacancy on the council won't officially occur Special election to fill Cano's council seat expected in late June By ETHAN SHOREY Valley Breeze Managing Editor EMMA OBENCHAIN, above, plays the lead role in the St. Cecilia School Center Stage Cougars production of "Annie Jr.," held at the school in Pawtucket, last Saturday.

BREEZE PHOTOS BY BILL MURPHY PAWTUCKET – In 2010, the year leading up to Mayor Donald Grebien being elected and sworn in as mayor, the city saw less than one-tenth of a mile of roadway repaved. This year, Pawtucket residents will see another 15 miles of road repaved, bringing the total number of miles of new asphalt to 103 since Grebien took office. That 15 miles covers 40 road segments. In many cases, officials have been able to stretch dollars by not repaving the portion of a road deemed in good condition. Grebien has announced that the Pawtucket Department of Public Works will resume road repaving this week. The first repaving efforts of the spring will take place on Kelton Street beginning at Revere Street and continue up toward Rice Street. Construction on each road segment is typically completed over a span of two weeks, weather permitting.
