Jeanne-Marie Napolitano (at right) and friend Nancy Sullivan tally Newport City Council votes on a white board at an election night watch party at Sardella’s Italian Restaurant. Napolitano, a former Newport mayor and current city council incumbent, led all council candidates in vote-getting. The New York Times ran a story on Nov. 5 giving election watch party tips.
