I hope Cranston has their eyes wide open and realize this guy Lombardi is a North Providence transplant with as much Mafia connections and way of thinking and as crooked. He would not help small busines but closed them down as he tried to illegally, immorally, with LIES, CORRUPTIONS and abuse of his connections by attemting to close my 22 years successful business. He took advbantage of his long time friend Joe Ferruci to a means to an end. He will close you down to give the busiess to his cloonies. He tried with me, he did lots of damage, he failed but Cranbston needs to know he is down to the core rotten!!!
