WOONSOCKET â€“ In apparent conflict with the anti-nepotism provisions of the state ethics code, Mayor Lisa Baldelli-Hunt created a seasonal jobs program earlier this year, opening new positions for highway laborers that were filled by her teenage son and his teammates on a summer baseball league.
WOONSOCKET — As soon as the final point fell to the floor, spelling Mount St. Charles’ 3-1 Division I crossover loss to Coventry High on Wednesday night, head coach Josh D’Abate led his kids to the other side of the gymnasium, beyond the canvas divider, for a team meeting.
Naturally, it’s unknown what was said, as it should be, but if D’Abate’s demeanor upon return was any indication, it couldn’t have been that bad.
