Charbonneau reintroduces himself to voters

PAWTUCKET – School Committee Chairman Gerard “Jay” Charbonneau says he’s reintroducing himself to voters.

“I never sought public office. I was the dad of two young children attending Potter-Burns School the day pieces of the ceiling fell down,” he said. “I had a choice to pull my children from Pawtucket public schools or stay and become part of the solution. I choose the latter for my children and yours.”

Charbonneau said the committee has completely renovated Potter-Burns and Nathanael Greene, and invested in security, technology, and curriculum.

“With strong support from you, the taxpayers and voters of this city, we have done more work on schools in the last six years than at any time in Pawtucket’s rich history,” he said. “Our largest project yet, the brand new Henry Winters Elementary School, is currently underway.”

He added, “I believe I have met the responsibility your vote deserves.”
