Providence Mayor

Mark Degon of member station WRNI in Providence reports on the controversy surrounding Mayor Vincent Cianci, who's been indicted by a grand jury for allegedly taking bribes in exchange for jobs, tax reductions, and city contracts. Rhode Island Governor Lincoln Almond says Cianci should resign, but the mayor says he's done nothing wrong and will fight the allegations in court. Cianci is still popular and is widely credited with making Providence a model for urban renewal.
