PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - The mayors of two of Rhode Island’s largest cities are again teaming up to host job fairs.

Providence Mayor Angel Taveras and Cranston Mayor Allan Fung announced Wednesday that they will hold eight job fairs this year. Most will be held at the Roger Williams Park Casino.

The first job fair is scheduled for Feb. 26 and will focus on health care industry jobs. Subsequent fairs will concentrate on hospitality, manufacturing and retail jobs.

Taveras, a Democrat, and Fung, a Republican, are both running for governor. Last year they co-hosted 11 career fairs that attracted 265 businesses and more than 1,700 job seekers.
