Appiah challenges Rudd in Council District 6

PAWTUCKET – Jeffrey Appiah announced last week that he is running to be the next city councilor representing District 6, a seat currently held by Tim Rudd.

He said he was born and raised in Pawtucket and is the son of a Ghanaian immigrant single mother.

“The family values and work ethic my mother instilled in me are what guide me as a person and a parent,” he said. “My 5-year-old son is my inspiration. I want the best for him and all the youth growing up in our community.”

Appiah said he is deeply rooted in the Pawtucket community. He worked at the Boys & Girls Club for 10 years. He now works for Turning the Corner.

Appiah said he is a supporter of city schools and wants to see more investments in Pawtucket’s schools. The city should also prioritize investments that are most important to Fairlawn residents’ quality of life, he said, as well as addressing daily issues such as rats.

Appiah said he is running to be able to help create solutions for the neighborhood and Pawtucket. He said he plans to work to cut spending and keep more money in the pockets of hardworking taxpayers.

Appiah said keeping the Pawtucket Red Sox is also very important to the community, and it should be a high priority for all of the city’s elected leaders.
