Some Things Change, Others Don’t



Before a stress-laden night of watching results on national news for the announcement of our next commander in chief, Newport and other local races were similar nail-biters, with some seats still not certain based on outstanding absentee ballots. But indications were that the Newport City Council's regular meeting on Wednesday, Nov. 9, was the last meeting on the dais for councilor at-large Justin McLaughlin (left) and First Ward councilor Marco Camacho (right). At-large councilor Naomi Neville (second from left) did not seek re-election. All are pictured with Mayor Jeanne- Marie Napolitano.

But, some things don’t change and assurances have been made to the city that the road will be paved before the predetermined date of Dec. 15.
