C. Fogarty launches Cranston mayoral bid

The Cranston mayoral race bears watching, in part because of that city's tradition in incubating candidates for bigger future runs.

Matt has this update:

Last week, Cindy Fogarty kicked-off her campaign for Mayor of Cranston.  Kmareka has the audio of her announcement and the test of her speech here.

It was a mercifully short event yesterday, standing out in the blazing sun in front of city hall, especially for the Democratic candidates who were all dutifully suited up. Democratic City Chair Mike Sepe reminded us that some of the most powerful and successful women in Rhode Island government have come from Cranston. Cindy Fogarty spoke about growing up on the South Side of Providence, going to Classical High School, and her climb into the middle class here in Cranston. She gave some background on her accomplishments as Chair of the Finance Committee in Cranston and spoke to the fundamental purpose of local government to collect taxes and use them responsibly to provide services.
