Mayor may ask unions to take 10% cut

March 20, 2012

WOONSOCKET – Mayor Leo T. Fontaine says he’s advised the major employees unions representing police, fire and teachers that he might ask them for a 10 percent pay cut to help close a $10 million gap in the School Department’s budget.
But whether he follows through depends on what happens tonight, when the City Council takes up a resolution to borrow some $4.3 million on the anticipation of collecting supplemental taxes.

Habitual police taunter finally gets arrested

March 20, 2012

WOONSOCKET — When police arrested 27-year-old Maurice Godin on drug charges last week, they didn’t just get their man.
They got the last laugh.
Strange as it seems, Godin made no effort to keep his illicit behavior a secret from the authorities. On the contrary, police say he had a history of boasting directly to police officers about being a “good drug dealer” and sometimes berated them for being unable to catch him.
