NP Mayor releases video of former firefighter to Retirement Board for review

NORTH PROVIDENCE, R.I (WPRI) — North Providence Mayor Charles Lombardi has asked state retirement officials to examine a video that raised questions about the tax-free disability pension of a retired firefighter.

Former firefighter Stephen Campbell is seen in the video taken by North Providence detectives over several months shoveling snow and doing other “manual labor.”

Campbell collects the pension for an injured hand.

According to the mayor, a subcommittee of the Retirement Board will take up the issues at a meeting in December. He says he hopes they will strip Campbell of his pension.

Campbell has not returned calls for comment.
