WOONSOCKET – Mayor Lisa Baldelli-Hunt struck a tone of cautious optimism as she recapped her administration’s accomplishments last night in a speech marking her first 100 days in office.

With the aid of Power Point visuals, Baldelli-Hunt embarked on a detailed, hour-long synopsis that covered a bit of old ground, but also contained a few surprises. 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.
