    smiley is the least qualified candidate. i could not find much of a resume on his website??? what does that mean? what are his achievements? says he was a financial advisor to last 2 mayors. one was ciccilini. is that something you would advertise?

    as for hull — maybe a job in it for someone. or maybe he has an ax to grind against everyone else. most in ri, especially providence, support others just to get favors.

    still can’t figure out why anyone would want to be mayor. its a ship that has already sunk.
