Our guests for the evening will be the Honorable Nirva LaFortune, of Ward 3 in Providence; Nicholas J. Narducci, Jr., of Ward 4; and Samuel D. Zurier, of Ward 2. The panel will be moderated by Ms. Joan Retsinas of the RI Chapter of the League of Women Voters.

The panel will have a conversation focused around their roles as they have touched on a few areas of most import to our residents: public works, social welfare, public safety, and services. The Council members will have a half-hour discussion and then will field up to four questions taken from the audience. Audience members will have a chance to submit questions in writing during the event. The program will conclude with a short time for rebuttals and final remarks.

The three Council members are very gracious to treat these topics in such an open forum. It our hope that the panel discussion format will lead to lively, revealing conversation. Residents will have a clearer answer to the question “How does our City work?”
