Providence City Councilman and probable mayoral candidate John J. Lombardi's web site is up and running this afternoon and looks awfully Obama-like - in colors, tone, even logo.
The prez's campaign signature, a red-white-&-blue sunrise image, has been superimposed on a star in Lombardi's hands. Pretty nifty.
Now, we'll see if he can emulate the president where it really counts - in fundraising and vote-gathering.
Lombardi, who briefly served as mayor in 2002 after Buddy Cianci's resignation, would take on incumbent Mayor David N. Cicilline if he hops in the race, as expected.
