Cranston Mayor Allan Fung has named a new Director of Administration for the city. Robert Coupe is a corporate lawyer with a private practice.
Coupe also served as an attorney for the state of Massachusetts under former governor Mitt Romney. Coupe served as spokesman for Fung during his unsuccessful bid for Rhode Island governor.
Mayor Fung said he selected Coupe because, “he offers the right combination of strong public policy experience with a private-sector commitment to promoting greater efficiency and accountability in city government.”
Cranston’s former Director of Administration, Gerald Cordy, retired this year after serving in the position since 2011.
