Avedisian ticketed as next chairman of RIPTA board
The Chafee administration plans to back the elevation on Monday of Warwick Mayor Scott Avedisian as the next chairman of the Rhode Island Public Transit Authority, RIPR has learned.
Avedisian would succeed Providence’s director of Planning and Development, Thomas Deller, who recently resigned as board chairman.
Avedisian is a close political ally of Governor Chafee.
