Brien stays in council chair

July 21, 2014

WOONSOCKET – A move to punt City Council President Albert G. Brien from his leadership role on the panel ended yesterday, as abruptly as it began on Friday, after one of its supporters apparently had a change of heart.

Councilman Chris Beauchamp announced publicly Monday morning that he would seek to table the matter at a special reorganizational meeting that was supposed to take place last night, prior to the council’s regular meeting in Harris Hall. After hearing of Beauchamp’s decision, fellow Councilman Garrett Mancieri said, he formally asked the city clerk to cancel the meeting.

“The votes weren’t there,” said Mancieri. “So I just canceled the meeting. I didn’t want to see it tabled and have everybody come to a special meeting for nothing.”
