Statement from City Council Majority Leader Jo-Ann Ryan:
As an Irish-American, I am proud to co-sponsor with my colleague, Majority Whip John J. Igliozzi, an ordinance to recognize March as Irish-American and Italian-American Heritage month in perpetuity.
Providence is home to a diverse population and in honor of St. Patrick’s Day and St. Joseph’s Day, both of which are important cultural holidays that fall in March, I am very pleased to bring this ordinance forward and honored to have it passed by my colleagues.
