Dear Constituents and Citizens

 

Please allow me to apologize for what I said on Monday evening at the city council meeting. I never should have said what I did. I was totally out of line and I hope you can forgive me.

My behavior was extremely inappropriate, immature, and lacked the respect you as citizens deserve and expect from me as your representative. I’m not sure what made me think it was OK to say that Word. It wasn’t. It was embarrassing, but I learned that nobody appreciated my poor behavior. In the future, I have every intention of curbing my thoughtless actions and learn to adjust my behavior befitting the environment and situation. 

Again, I am sorry for my actions and I hope that we can put this matter behind us. I look forward to continuing to do the good work for the people I serve here in Woonsocket.

 

 

 

Sincerely,

Richard J. Fagnant

City Councilman

    

President Trump is getting ready to launch his 2002 presidential campaign. He officially jumps into the race tonight with a rally in Orlando, Florida. Crowds are already beginning to pack the Amway Center. Police are expecting overflow crowds of supporters outside the arena, as well as protesters.        The White House doesn't want former communications director Hope Hicks to testify about her time as a senior advisor to the President. White House lawyers say Hicks has absolute immunity from being compelled to testify about her time in the White House. She's been subpoenaed by the House Judiciary Committee and is set to answer questions behind closed doors tomorrow.        President Trump insists that an aggressive round-up of illegal immigrants will begin next week. At the White House today, Trump said people who came into the country illegally, "have to come out." Trump said on Twitter Monday that "millions" of illegal immigrants will be removed from the country.       The family of a six-year-old victim of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in Connecticut is getting a victory in a defamation lawsuit. A judge in Wisconsin ruled the authors of Nobody Died At Sandy Hook defamed Lenny Pozner. Pozner's son Noah was among the 20 first graders and six educators killed at the school in 2012.        A son of a reputed mobster is pleading not guilty in his father's murder at a McDonald's Drive-Thru in the Bronx last year. Cops say 41-year-old Anthony Zottola is among four people arrested on murder-for-hire charges last night. Seventy-one-year-old Sylvester Zottola, an alleged associate with the Bonanno family, was waiting for food inside his SUV on Webster Avenue when he was shot and killed.        A ten-year-old from Colorado is setting a record as the youngest person to climb Yosemite National Park's El Capitan. Selah Schneiter climbed the granite cliffs this month with her dad and his friend, completing the feat in just five days. Schneiter says she accomplished the feat by taking it one move at a time.
