Chafee tours Woonsocket businesses

March 14, 2011

WOONSOCKET — Gov. Lincoln Chafee took a walk on Main Street with Mayor Leo T. Fontaine on Monday and learned about the challenges of economic development in one of his state’s distressed communities.
There were several signs of hope to be found on the tour, talks with business owners making a go of it despite the tough economy, and also a few reminders of work yet to be done to put viable businesses in still vacant storefronts.
“It’s challenging,” Chafee admitted after touring the large mill property Marie Deschenes is revitalizing at 117 Main St.
