(Providence) – Former Providence Mayor Joe Paolino tells WPRO that he’s looking into a possible run for Governor in 2022. The one time Mayor and U.S Ambassador to Malta made the comments in an interview with WPRO’s Tara Granahan Wednesday.

“There’s some big things that need to happen and I see them happening slow. I don’t see the urgency I’ve seen in the past,” said Paolino.

Listen to the full conversation below.

Currently a developer and TV Host, Paolino says he doesn’t know if a campaign is realistic.

Paolino’s election to Mayor was followed by unsuccessful runs for Governor, Congress, and again for Mayor of Providence.
