Justin McLaughlin

Candidate Endorsement

I urge my fellow Newport voters to place Mr. Justin McLaughlin back on the city council. Justin is running for one of the four at-large seats and his election will assure all issues are not only thoroughly examined but that council's actions are in the best long-term interest of the city and its residents.

Several issues with long-term consequences will challenge our city council during the next two years e.g., possibility of relocating the high school, the regulation of AirBnBs, mitigating the effects of climate change and maintaining a viable year-round affordable community are issues requiring thorough study and the mature methodical approach that Justin will bring to the city council.

Justin McLaughlin is a retired federal executive with a record of distinguished service and dedication to our community so return him to the city council with the confidence that he will always act in our best interest.
