PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) – A superior court judge has upheld the Providence Retirement Board’s decision to award convicted City Hall official Frank Corrente a partial pension.
The decision marks a defeat for former mayor David Cicilline, who filed a suit in an attempt to completely revoke Corrente’s pension.
In 2008, the Providence Retirement Board voted to give Corrente a partially reduced pension, ruling he could collect for his first term of service from 1967 to 1987. They stripped him of the more lucrative benefit he later earned for serving as convicted former mayor Vincent “Buddy” Cianci’s director of administration.
