His use of the term "Knowledge DIstrict" came along with an aside that it is "also the historic Jewelry District of Providence". We applaud his strong support of the I-195 Commission as it works through the complexities of turning a dead Interstate into prime development land.
But here in the historic Jewelry District we'd like it a whole lot better if he'd just stick with our time-honored name. We suggest he remember that there's a powerful amount of knowledge hard at work up on the hill across the river from the historic Jewelry DIstrict and out West at Providence College and Rhode Island College.
But let's not lose sight of the big picture. Whatever he calls our neighborhood, he's working hard to rebuild our city.
