East Providence Council Term Extension Attempt Has Election Board's Attention

The Rhode Island Board of Elections could soon be meeting to talk about East Providence City Council members reportedly attempting to double the length of their terms.  A "Providence Journal" story over the weekend indicated several council members want to turn their two-year terms into four-year terms based on a 2012 city referendum which authorized the extension, but was never implemented.  That move would eliminate the need for an election this upcoming fall.  The "Journal" now reports a member of the elections board, with the backing of the board chairman, is calling on the full board to get together as soon as possible.
