A similar public retirement system overhaul, led by state Treasurer Gina Raimondo and approved by the General Assembly in 2011, unfolded much differently: It's tied up in legal wrangling, with unions and retired government workers calling the changes unconstitutional, unfair and a breach of contract.The son of Dominican immigrants and Providence's first Latino mayor, Taveras finds himself one of the best-liked politicians in the state, with a difficult choice to make later this year â¿¿ whether to seek the governor's office. That could pit him against Raimondo in what would be a hard-fought Democratic primary.
