Democrat Michael Sepe is running for Mayor of Cranston. Sepe made the formal announcement on Sunday.
Sepe told Rhode Island Public Radio of his intention to run this summer. At the time current Cranston Mayor Allan Fung was embroiled in a controversy over the management of the city police department.
Sepe, a self-employed accountant has been involved in local politics since the mid-1980s. He’s served on the city council, and as the city’s Democratic Chairman. He lost a previous run for mayor in 1994.
Fung has not ruled out a reelection bid, though he has made no formal announcement. He’s been mayor of Cranston since 2009.
