If you're feelin' unlucky, vote for Buddy.

Vincent "Buddy" Cianci Jr. was mayor of Providence from 1975 to 1984, and again from 1991 to 2002. He was much-loved for his charisma and genuine affection for the city of Providence, and despised for his shady dealings and vindictive temper. His first stint as mayor ended with a forced resignation following a violent altercation with a man who he thought was making time with his estranged wife. The second stint ended with a trip to prison for racketeering. He lost his 2014 re-election bid, and passed away in early 2016.
