I concur with Mr. Paul Zonfrillo’s letter re: the conflicts of interests that candidates of Ms. Buonanno, Ms. Kelly, Mr. Robenhymer, Mr. Hames have with running for seats on the Narragansett Town Council and suing the town at the same time.
Thank you for all of the support you have shown me during my run for Town Council. I did this to be a voice for everyone, and although my run ended short of my goal, my desire to help Narragansett is stronger than ever.
On Tuesday, Sept. 1, we four servicemen, wearing baseball caps that denoted our heritage as Air Force veterans were thrilled beyond words when informed that, in recognition of our military service, our luncheon meals had been paid for by other patrons who were in attendance at the Matunuck Oyster Bar Restaurant in South Kingstown.
Testing, testing, testing. That is what we hear constantly from elected officials including Gov. Raimondo. They say we need to be guided by “the data and science.”
Dr. Keith Roach, the author of a syndicated seven days a week medical advice column, responded recently to a question about the value of a test for the coronavirus. He wrote, “There is really no reason to be checking for the virus…unless you have a compelling reason for a medical procedure or travel or could otherwise potentially expose others.”
On Sept. 4, a woman whose diminutive size and voice gave her the nickname “Squeak” as a child, passed away after a life of dedication to the people of South Kingstown, both as a nurse and public servant. Barbara Anne Hackey, a lifetime resident of the town and from a family dating back many generations, gave much more than she took.
I write to congratulate all who participated in this year’s local Democratic Primary. Although the process was more bruising than I had anticipated (at least for Town Council), at least the candidates for public office and the local Democratic Town Committee are participating in our local democracy. My hat is off to all of you.
Thank you to all of those who supported me during the primary. As of this writing, the results are still pending from the Board of Elections mail in ballots.
We had some excellent conversations about the three college student ordinance and how it can bring a positive change to our town.
As a current School Committee member, I am beyond proud of the work that has been done under Superintendent Linda Savastano and Chair Stephanie Canter. At this time I would like to share with the community what has been accomplished.
We have watched the good work of Melissa Boyd for 15 years, watched her energy, her compassion and, most of all, her leadership. Now she is running for the South Kingstown School Committee, and there is not a better person to take on that role.
I’m Cadence Hansen, and I am a Democratic candidate for School Committee. I am a scientist, a mathematician, an engineer, a mother, and a wife to lifelong RI native Jesse Hansen.
My name is Nick Edwards and I am a lifelong Narragansett resident. I am writing to wholeheartedly urge the voters of Narragansett and North Kingstown to vote for my good friend Alana DiMario for State Senate, District 36.
The five individuals elected to the South Kingstown Town Council are considered members “at-large,” or representing all voters – in theory, but since 2000, council majorities associated or aligned with the National Education Association of RI have given preference to the 400-500 members of that association’s two locals, NEASK and SKESP, over our students and our community.
