Statement from Senior Deputy Majority Leader Nicholas J. Narducci Jr.

It was alarming to hear a public official condoning an act of vandalism.

An act of vandalism is not political discourse, it is not freedom of speech, and it is not a form of dissent. It is a crime.

As elected officials we have a sworn duty to uphold the law and not waste precious resources cleaning up the mess that vandalism leaves behind.

As City Councilors we don’t represent just our Wards; we represent the City as a whole – including factions of constituents we may disagree with.

I believe wholeheartedly in one’s right to their freedom of speech and expression, but I will not and can not condone vandalism of any kind.

Senior Deputy Majority Leader Nicholas J. Narducci Jr. Works With City and State Officials on Canada Pond Remediation

This past Friday, Senior Deputy Majority Leader Nicholas J. Narducci Jr. (Ward 4) was notified by a concerned neighbor regarding a large amount of dead fish on the perimeter of Canada Pond. He visited the location, and sent pictures to his office that were then shared with the appropriate partners.

“It appears to me that the pond was drained to low,” stated Senior Deputy Majority Leader Nicholas J. Narducci Jr. “As soon as I learned of the issue on Friday I had my staff reach out to the Department of Environmental Management and the City’s Department of Public Works to get answers. There are several theories, and I have invited members of the team involved to join me at tonight’s community meeting to brief my constituents. I have been told that this is an unfortunate side-effect of doing this kind of work.”

The pond was drained to make much-needed repairs to the gates and the dam itself, which will keep the dam in working order for the foreseeable future.

Canada pond is located off Branch Avenue next to Route 146 and is roughly a mile long. Narducci continued, “There have been no significant repairs to the damn since the early part of the last century, and this is an important safety fix for our residents. However, I was assured that the aquatic life would not be harmed. I am deeply disappointed that this happened, and I have been assured that the DEM is working to solve the issue and remove the dead fish.”

As the pond has been drained, workers have come across a great deal of debris. “One of the reasons so many of the fish have died could be because of the disturbance from removing these large items. It’s a reminder that we need to be better stewards of our natural areas,” continued Narducci.

Senior Deputy Majority Leader will be holding his community meeting this evening at 5:30 PM at the DaVinci Center, which is located at 470 Charles Street in Providence. Members from the City’s team working on this project will be on hand to give an update to the project and remediation efforts.

Septemberfest in Ward 4

On Saturday, September 28, 2019 Senior Deputy Majority Leader Nicholas J. Narducci Jr., Senator Maryellen Goodwin, and the North End Community Action Committee held their 13th Annual Septemberfest.

It was a wonderful day in the North End with kids winning bikes, playing on the bounce houses, and even enjoying the petting zoo. Thanks to all the community partners that made the day such a success!

The Councilman was also joined by Mayor Elorza to dedicate the Valentino “Val” Innocente Fitness Area.
