New R.I. state senator to take office
PROVIDENCE -- A new state senator gets ready to take office.
Senator-elect Roger Picard, of Woonsocket, will take the oath of office during a ceremony this afternoon at the State House. Picard won a special election in April to fill a seat held by Senator Roger Badeau, who died in January.
Picard was elected a state representative in 1992. He resigned yesterday from the House so he could take his new seat in the Senate. Picard's seat in the House will remain vacant until a successor is elected in November.
