Neville Not to Run

To the Editor:

It's been an honor to serve as a city councilor but I have a number of exciting professional opportunities and at this time; I need to focus on my career.

I've been pleased to have created a productive working environment between the school department and the city and the successful start of shared services, information technology improvements, the hiring of a new city manager and important capital projects such as St. Clare's, the Pell School and Queen Anne Square park renovations.

Newport is such a special place and I consider myself fortunate to have been a part of the leadership of this wonderful community and I owe a deep debt of gratitude to the people of Newport for electing me 3 times. Most of all I'd like to thank my husband Jeff and my daughters for their unwavering support. I look forward to serving in different ways in the years to come.
