As a long time resident of Newport but presently a resident of Middletown, I have been privy to local politics. More specifically, my father, Dean J. Lewis, was the former mayor of Newport from 1950 – 1953. He was the last mayor to be elected by the voters. My sister Helene Lewis served ten years on the Newport school committee from 1983 – 1993.
I have had the commitment for many years to announce Rogers football games as well as Pop Warner football games. This has been my pleasure. I feel Bobby Leary has the same sense of pleasure and commitment by being a volunteer income tax preparer for Newport residents at no cost to them. I know he feels the same way about his commitment to the parents and students of Newport schools.
So, I am writing this endorsement for Bobby to be elected to the Newport School Committee.
I am asking all my Newport friends to please vote for Bobby Leary.
