Face-Off Frenzy

We wish all office seekers good luck at the polls on Election Day. In contrast to what is unfolding at the national level, local contests have been relatively civilized. Aquidneck Island is no exception; these Newport and Middletown candidates have behaved well, presented themselves in a dignified manner, and displayed a genuine concern for and awareness of effective governance. These individuals have campaigned hard, debated, answered questions, knocked on doors, and put their best feet forward – all in the hope of having a hand in the future of Newport County, its schools, its economy, and its quality of life. Not voting to make a statement also leaves one without a voice when it comes to living on Aquidneck Island. Get out and vote!
