The Avedisian -deflect and deny- playbook is still sitting on his mantle surrounded by burning candles.
Warwick Watch has noted once again the "spin" that Avedisian has placed ( from his RIPTA seat) on who's to blame for the financial disaster the city of Warwick is currently facing. Those that have been paying close attention have been warning about this situation for over a decade.
The numbers never lie.
Not even a year ago, just after Avedisian cut more last minute, behind the curtain, unsustainable contract deals, he bailed with his $80k/year pension & benefits package...leaving the taxpayers of Warwick holding the bag.
What Avedisian was touting as he was skipping out the door, was the big revenue surplus of about $7 million, putting city reserves at around $25 million. The City Council drew down funds from the reserve account to pay for increased teacher salaries and increased everything else, which has brought the reserve account down to about $12 million. The drawdown on the reserves is still nowhere near close enough to cover all of the pay-as-we-go debt expenses.
Moody's warned: FACTORS THAT COULD LEAD TO A DOWNGRADE:
As he ran out the exit door, Avedisian continued to mislead the public as he did for 20 years by also stating Warwick's "robust and growing economy" would allow for the city's "continued fiscal health". Not even a year later, the reality cat was let out of the bag by current Mayor Joe Solomon, which shredded the curtains with financial crisis reality nails.
The "self correcting mechanism" that Avedisian always touted is the Warwick taxpayers who are left to bail out his mess with exorbitant tax increases. The Avedisian blame game is in full effect, but it's important for everyone to understand that a lot of what Avedisian did was done behind the backs of the City Council.
It's unfair yet not a surprise to see Mayor Joe Solomon getting blamed for the city's current fiscal situation, when the blame should ultimately fall onto the shoulders and lap of Scott Avedisian.

FYI!! This guy Brian Gouves is actively involved in continuous acts of online harassment. He operates alongside the Whittaker brothers as well who all live in Warwick.
Facebook has already removed posts that are harassing in nature, violate copyrights, and also incite violence.
Why Facebook allows hate group pages to continue to exist on its platform while other personal Facebook accounts and Pages are removed for unfair, discriminatory reasons--> is a question that gets asked daily by many!
Representative CAMILLE VELLA WILKINSON worked as former corrupt Mayor Scott Avedisian's shill for six years while serving on the Warwick City Council Finance Committee, she was also a city retiree board member (we checked her for slacking on her board member attendance record).
While Rep Camille Vella Wilkinson served on the Warwick City Council and on the City Finance committee, she did nothing but demean every citizen of Warwick that stepped up to the podium inside City Hall to express their concerns about the massive financial dilemma the city of Warwick was facing. Educated, smart, and caring Warwick taxpayers who saw the writing on the wall repeatedly presented accurate facts and figures (for free mind you) to highlight the massive fiscal doom that our City was facing in the not so near future.
Camille Vella Wilkinson sabotaged citizen presentations, openly mocked citizens by calling information being presented as "kitchen table numbers" , openly allowed city union employees to bully, harass, mock and attempt to intimidate good citizens of Warwick who were just trying to get the truth and facts out there to the public. No one wanted to hear it. They laughed. Fools are always so easily fooled.
Rep Camille Vella -Wilkinson only had her eyes set on the ticket she was holding on to that was punched for her train ride up to the State House to pander some more to the special interest groups that sent her there. Vella-Wilkinson's sidekick, long time City Council member DONNA TRAVIS who represents the Oakland Beach area, is another one who has burned the City of Warwick and the taxpayers every single year she's been on the City Council--- TOO MANY years.
All a bunch of lying , crony hacks who FOR YEARS:
So they could all fraudulently enrich themselves.
The local media -for years- lied for Avedisian and mislead city employees and the taxpayers of Warwick. When Warwick Watch - five years ago- warned about the ONE BILLION DEFICIT the city of Warwick was facing , local media mocked it as the "big scary numbers".
Well it's all hitting the fan so hard now, you better duck and keep your mouth and eyes closed!!!
Now Mayor Solomon is left hold the big stinking bag of ____.
And BTW-- the city retirement board voted just last year to give themselves (as most of the members are city employees) and Warwick city retirees a 3% COLA every year!!! Something ELSE our Warwick City Council OVERLOOKED!!!
Mayor Joe solomon did a fine job outlining the dire financial situation our city is in, so let's see how HEALTHCARE REFORM, SPENDING CUTS & STOPPING THOSE COLAS will come into play for this one sided " self correcting mechanism" situation. You know it can't all just be just on the backs of the taxpayers because you also know that will be the final nail in the coffin for Warwick.
Imagine being so ignorant (Progressives are) to think this type of behavior should ever be tolerated.
That warped, entitlement mentality again...
Warwick Rep EVAN SHANLEY District 24, has his name on an ABORTION BILL that looks to eliminate certain anti-Abortion provisions currently on the RI law books.
Bill H5125 seeks to remove criminal penalties against a perp who has kills a pregnant woman, if the infant dies, that wouldn't count, wouldn't matter.
Shanley also doesn't believe human life begins at conception. He also seeks to eliminate "Declaration of Purpose which "is to promote the state's interest in furthering the integrity of the institution of marriage and family."-- SHANLEY wants that gone too...
Shanley also supports the the elimination of "Spousal Notice Requirements--- if the wife wants an abortion-- the HUSBAND DOESNT NEED TO KNOW A THING.
SHANLEY also advocates * for the the willful killing of a "QUICK CHILD" - a QUICK CHILD is "defined as an unborn child whose heart is beating, who is experiencing electronically-measurable brain waves, who is discernibly moving, who is so far developed and matured as to be capable of surviving the trauma of birth with the aid of usual medical care and facilities available in this state."
Shanley also wants health insurance companies to pay for abortions, including tax payer funded state medicaid.
HERE'S THE BILL: http://webserver.rilin.state.ri.us/…/…/HouseText19/H5125.pdf
ASK YOURSELVES EVERY DAY WHERE THE LINE MUST BE DRAWN IN THE SANDS OF LOST HUMANITY.
To Kerry Thibault,
As a taxpayer in the city of Warwick I am repulsed at your behavior which has been captured in the video (below) that has spread all over social media and is going viral. The video clearly indicates you assaulting another person in addition to making racist comments.
You have publicly comported yourself as an imbecile and a deranged female thug. You should be fired immediately as clearly you have mental issues which are the cause of your explosive, disgusting behavior.
You are an example of why the Warwick School System is failing and why parents are sending more and more children to private school. Obviously there is no drug screening or mental evaluations taking place with Warwick teachers. The fact that you post your phone number publicly online to entice people to call and confront you is an indication of your unstable mental condition. You are the one who is "whacked" in the head and an embarrassment to the city of Warwick.
You pose as a safety threat to all elementary school children. The fact that you have worked with special needs children is extremely disturbing. No parent and or taxpayer in the city of Warwick should tolerate even for one second, the type of disgusting public behavior you have displayed. You're disgusting trash.
Here's the video:
THIS MESSAGE HAS ALSO BEEN SENT DIRECTLY TO THE INDIVIDUALS ON THE WARWICK CITY COUNCIL AND MEMBERS OF THE MEDIA. THEIR EMAILS ARE BELOW. YOU SHOULD ALSO DO THE SAME IF YOU DON'T WANT TO SEE LOWLIFE TRASH LIKE THE ONE ABOVE AROUND YOUR CHILDREN.

Congressman David Cicilline Co-Sponsors MN Rep Keith Ellison's Bill To Bring 110,00 More Refugees Into State of Minnesota. Ellison, Two Active Domestic Abuse Charges. Refugees Prefer Sharia Law Over Constitutional Law- ISIS Linked Arrests
Rep Keith Ellison, Minnesota - DNC Chair Candidate who's also running for the Minnesota Attorney General's seat, right now has two active domestic abuse charges against him. The Democrats are silent on his domestic abuse charges as is the media.
Ellison, who is backed by the Muslim Brotherhood, is pushing to resettle another 110,000 refugees into America's state of Minnesota that right now has the greatest number of refugees.
MN Rep Keith Ellison pushing for US to resettle 110,000 refugees beginning on Monday
Here's the BILL backed by RI Congressman David Cicilline: H1073
Rep Keith Ellison, the first Muslim elected to Congress – has received political contributions by handful of donors with a history of Muslim Brotherhood connections. "For example, Ellison accepted $950 in contributions from Jamal Barzinji and another $1,000 from Hisham Al-Talib. And in late March, the Investigative Project on Terrorism has learned, Ellison attended a private fundraiser at the northern Virginia home of a man who led a group tied to the Muslim Brotherhood."
Muslim Brotherhood-Tied Group Paid for Keith Ellison to Visit Mecca in 2008
An estimated 200,000 Muslims live in Minnesota, mostly Somali. The FBI has reported that one prominent member of al-Shabaab said American jihadi's account for dozens of the terror group's fighters. A 2011 Congressional report put the number around 40. https://abcnews.go.com/Politics/forty-americans-somalia-called-direct-threat-us-security/story?id=14171177#.T2dJIMV5GSo
6 Somali-American Minnesotans Held in Plot to Join ISIS American, US resident extremists defect from Al-Shabaab in Somalia
American, US resident extremists defect from Al-Shabaab in Somalia
Minnesota woman, 19, who allegedly told students to 'join the jihad,' is indicted.
Here's a video that shows a reporter in Minnesota interviewing Muslims and asking them if they prefer Sharia Law over Constitutional Law. The answer over and over again is they prefer Sharia Law. They also say they would rather live in Somalia vs. the USA, and that it's ok to kill someone who insults their prophet Mohammed.
They do not assimilate.
Ellison is a Muslim Brotherhood backed shill that is working to infiltrate America from within.
Rep David Cicilline supports this.
Cicilline needs to go!
