Warwick mayor's race adds another face

The Warwick Beacon reports today that City Councilman Joseph J. Solomon (D) may take a run for Warwick mayor in 2006 where there is widespread speculation that current mayor Scott Avedisian (R) will run for statewide office.

“I’m exploring a number of different things at this point,” Solomon said during a break in this week’s City Council meeting, adding he was considering vacancies at both the local and state level or he might just seek re-election to his current post. “I enjoy public service,” said Solomon, who was elected to the council in 2000 and is now in his third term. “I find it very rewarding and fulfilling.” Solomon, if he were to formally announce a run for mayor would be among at least two other Warwick Democrats interested in the job, including Council President Donald Torres (D-Ward 2) and Councilman Steve Merolla (D-Ward 9).
Oh it's so fun to watch people come out the woodwork whenever there is a power vacuum!
