EAST PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — In less than a month, Taunton voters will be choosing their 50th – and first female – mayor.
State Rep. Shauna O’Connell and City Councilwoman Estele Borges both moved on to the general election, which will take place Nov. 5.
One of the candidates will replace Mayor Thomas Hoye, who announced he was stepping down after Republican Gov. Charlie Baker named him the Bristol County Register of Probate in August.
In the above video, both candidates square off in a debate on this week’s episode of Newsmakers.
