Buddy to do WaterFire tomorrow night

Cianci confidante Charles Mansolillo says the newly freed former mayor will be present at tomorrow night's WaterFire in Providence.

Asked if Cianci would make a grand entrance, the former city solicitor said, "I don't think that's been given very much thought. I don't know the answer to that question."

Mansolillo says Buddy will speak with reporters later, rather than sooner, because "he doesn't want to go through a cacophony of questions."  

Cianci slipped away from a media gaggle after a late lunch -- haddock and broccoli rabe -- at Joe Marzilli's Old Canteen on Federal Hill. Mansolillo threw the gathered reporters a bone this afternoon by taking questions during an impromptu press conference outside the restaurant. A short time later, with camera crews staking out several exits, Cianci, riding in the passenger seat of a gray Mercedes with Florida plates, sped away. He was wearing sunglasses and a baseball cap.

Mansolillio says seven people were at the lunch, including lawyer David Igliozzi, who unsuccessfully ran for mayor in 2002.
