|Ward asks for forgiveness|
Ward is the husband of Council member Sabina Matos who was recently knocked from the Council Presidency last month.
My full apology to David Salvatore and John Igliozzi:
In December of 2017, I was going through a difficult period as I watched my wife lose her position as President of the Providence City Council. The swiftness of it took us by surprise and in a moment of weakness I posted a childish meme on social media. I deeply regret that moment and wish I could take it back.
I have nothing but the utmost respect for Council President Salvatore and Councilman Igliozzi. I hope they very much can find it in their heart to forgive me. In addition, I ask for the forgiveness of every member of the Providence Democratic City Committee and anyone else I may have offended with this foolish act.
Patrick M. Ward
