And eat and drink and watch the black fin sharks swim about. Shark Bar & Grille will host a reception for Providence mayoral candidate Angel Taveras. Yes, this is a fundraiser — a donation of $25 is suggested. Running for public office is expensive and we need to support smart and energetic candidates who are willing to jump into the fray.
Providence attorney and former Housing Court Judge Angel Taveras grew up on the South Side of Providence, where he attended Head Start before entering the Providence Public Schools, and went on to graduate with honors from Harvard University.
Before attending law school, Angel leveraged a fellowship award to create an after-school program and summer day camp at the Elmwood Community Center. After obtaining his law degree from Georgetown University, Angel returned to Providence to practice at the firm of Brown, Rudnick, Berlack , Israels LLP.
He now wants to focus his energies on the City of Providence. Check him out at Angel Taveras for Mayor, or head over to Thayer Street later today and meet the guy in person.
Tuesday, 5:30pm to 7pm, Shark Bar & Grille, 275 Thayer Street, (FB)
