PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — Angel Taveras is set to give his final budget address as mayor of Providence.
The Democrat is scheduled to deliver his budget address before the city council on Tuesday evening. It will detail his budget blueprint for fiscal year 2015.
The mayor has spent much of his term addressing the city's shaky finances, including a $110 million deficit that was addressed in part through a pension overhaul and by securing more in voluntary payments from tax-exempt institutions.
Taveras is seeking the Democratic nomination for governor. He faces state Treasurer Gina Raimondo and political newcomer Clay Pell in the September primary.
