WOONSOCKET, R.I. (WPRI) — Former Woonsocket Mayor Lisa Baldelli-Hunt may soon have her seat back about a month after the City Council voted to remove her from office.
Baldelli-Hunt is running unopposed on Election Day.
In early October, the council voted 3-2 in favor of a resolution to oust Baldelli-Hunt. It was brought on by a complaint submitted by Councilor Denise Sierra, who accused Baldelli-Hunt of neglecting her mayoral duties and refusing to enforce measures passed by the council.
In response to the move, Baldelli-Hunt called the city council bullies and obstructionists who are “holding back projects out of spite.”
City Council President Daniel Gendron has served as acting mayor in her stead.
