This year has been an eventful one, and we have many reasons to be grateful as we gather with family and friends to celebrate Thanksgiving. The fiscal health of our City is growing stronger. I thank everyone who has shared in the effort to move Providence forward. I am proud of all we have accomplished together.
There is much to look forward to as we enter this holiday season and anticipate a new year. Providence’s first-class universities and healthcare institutions are drawing talented individuals to our City from across the region, the nation and the world. Our vibrant arts and cultural scene continues to attract national and international attention. Exciting new start-up companies continue to enhance Providence’s reputation for innovation. While there is more work to be done, our economy is headed in the right direction.
This Thanksgiving, let us be grateful for our families and all our blessings. And let us be mindful of the least fortunate among us and do what we can to make Providence and Rhode Island a better place for all.
I wish you a very happy Thanksgiving in the company of family and friends.
