Council Term Extension Attempt Gains Attention

posted by NewsRadio 920 -WHJJ -

(East Providence, RI)  --  The Rhode Island Board of Elections could soon be meeting to talk about East Providence City Council members reportedly attempting to double the length of their terms.  A "Providence Journal" story over the weekend indicated several council members want to turn their two-year terms into four-year terms based on a 2012 city referendum which authorized the extension, but was never implemented.  That move would eliminate the need for an election this upcoming fall.  The "Journal" now reports a member of the elections board, with the backing of the board chairman, is calling on the full board to get together as soon as possible.
