Longtime city assessor Quinn retiring

December 22, 2011

PAWTUCKET — As 2011 winds down, more than a dozen municipal employees have decided to retire, including several who occupy key positions in Pawtucket City Hall.
Longtime Tax Assessor David Quinn just announced his retirement on Thursday, although he will be stepping into the same role in the city of Providence. He told the Times that he is leaving to take the Tax Assessor's job at Providence City Hall under Mayor Angel Taveras that recently became available. He added that it was “too good of an opportunity to turn down.”
