Statement of Councilman Seth Yurdin Regarding City Council Consideration of Proposed $40M Bond Fund

Providence –  “I do not support placing this question before the voters.  The

administration has yet to provide concrete plans on how the money will be

used. Promises of future oversight from the very councilmembers that were

prepared to create multi-million dollar council-controlled slush-funds

provides no assurance that this money will be spent wisely. City

infrastructure needs serious improvement, but any improvements must be

undertaken in a transparent and accountable manner. Providence residents

deserves better.
