WOONSOCKET â€“ Mayor Lisa Baldelli-Hunt struck a tone of cautious optimism as she recapped her administrationâ€™s accomplishments last night in a speech marking her first 100 days in office.

Most controversially, perhaps, the mayor reaffirmed her commitment to all-day kindergarten and announced that she is ready to begin consolidating police and fire dispatching services in a move expected to save the city $630,000 a year.
