Mayoral primary today in North Providence
NORTH PROVIDENCE -- Local voters head to the polls today to weigh in on what has become a high-profile primary election.
Acting Mayor John Sisto Jr., who gave up his council seat in early January to serve in his new capacity, hopes to beat out former Town Councilman Charles Lombardi in the race for the Democratic mayoral nomination. The winner will face Republican opponent Billy Goodman in a special election April 17.
Today’s special election takes place because former Mayor A. Ralph Mollis ran for, and ultimately became, the secretary of state.
Four candidates are also in the running for the open Town Council seat created when Sisto filled Mollis' vacancy.
Polls are open from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. Check projo.com tonight for results.
