Primary Preview

Newport’s Second Ward Voters will be asked to narrow the field of candidates for the Second Ward City Council seat in the primary election on Wednesday, Sept. 12.

To help voters make an informed decision of which candidate to support, Alliance For A Livable Newport (ALN) sent the candidates a questionnaire which asked 15 probing questions about key local issues.

The responses from the Second Ward candidates now are available for viewing on newportalliance.org.

Candidates for the other Ward and At Large Council seats also received the questionnaire and were asked to submit their responses by Sept. 24 for viewing by all of Newport’s voters prior to the Nov. 6 general election. A separate questionnaire will be sent to the candidates for School Committee, also requesting responses by Sept. 24.
