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

    

Five people are dead after a man began gunning down his co-workers at an Aurora, Illinois manufacturing plant. Police later confronted the gunman and shot and killed him. Five police officers were injured in the exchange.       The President is declaring a national emergency along the southern border so he can divert nearly eight-billion-dollars to help build a wall. Democrats immediately blasted the move as an abuse of power. The governor of California says his state will sue to stop the act because it takes away money from programs meant to stop drug trafficking.       It's up to the Supreme Court to decide is a citizenship question will be on the 2020 Census form. The court has scheduled to hear arguments on the question in April. The government plans to begin printing the forms this summer.       A federal judge is telling Roger Stone to keep quiet. The judge issued a gag order today that orders President Trump's political ally to quit talking to the media or make any other public statements about his case.        White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders is the latest person to come forward and admit that she answered questions in the Special Counsel's investigation into Russia meddling in the 2016 presidential election. Sanders said she was interviewed last year. She added the President has asked everyone to cooperate with the probe.       John Dingell is at rest. The longest-serving member in Congressional history was laid to rest today at Arlington National Cemetery. He represented a district in Michigan for 59 years.       A California couple is pleading no content to felony grand theft charges. Police claim they took more than 18-hundred plants from Big Sur Park. Officials say poaching succulents is a growing trend.
