NORTH PROVIDENCE – School Committee member Arthur Corsini, who is running for re-election, says he fully supports the Town Council’s Aug. 2 vote and the mayor’s support to place a bond not to exceed $125 million before the town’s voters on the November ballot.

“This bond will raise money to build three new elementary schools, Whalen, Centredale and Greystone, bring us into the 21st Century with all our elementary school buildings, and, most importantly, carry a once-in-a-lifetime 80 percent reimbursement rate from the state of Rhode Island,” he said in a release. “Additionally, all three schools will be built on their existing sites with no need to vacate the existing schools or acquire swing spaces as was done with Stephen Olney and McGuire.”
