Mayor and Panel to Speak at ALN Forum

“The State of the City, Newport, Rhode Island,” a public forum presented by the Alliance for a Livable Newport, will be held on Tuesday, Feb. 27, from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at the Pell Elementary School. Panelists will be Mayor Harry Winthrop, City Council Vice-Chair Lynn Ceglie and City Manager Joe Nicholson.

Topics to be explored are “How are we doing in our city by the Sea”; “What has been accomplished over the past months”; “As a function of the city’s Strategic Plan, what are the successes”; “Where did the city fall short”; “What can the residents and taxpayers look forward to”; and “Any warning signals to look for.”

This is an opportunity to hear the perspectives of Newport’s elected officials and the city manager about the issues they have been addressing over the past year and expect to be facing in the current year, and to challenge them with your questions about the future of Newport.

Free parking will be available across the street from the school. Questions may be submitted in writing, at the event, or via email to info@newportalliance.org. You do not have to be present at the forum to have your question chosen.
