A Town Story Being Missed at the State Level

In all of its coverage of the election, thus far, including an “Election Digest” published last Thursday, the Providence Journal — like every other major news outlet in the state — has neglected to report on the fact that my local taxpayer group, Tiverton Citizens for Change, has taken a commanding role on the Town Council. Granted, we’re out here on the edge of the state, but the fact that a much-vilified group has placed its president, David Nelson, who happens also to be the target of an outlandish slander lawsuit filed by two outgoing council members, has taken a public office, along with enough of his allies to constitute a majority, is surely newsworthy.

Interesting choice of words Justin… “…a commanding role..”

Congrats to them and the Town. Of course, now they will have the lens turned on them to produce meaningful outcomes consistent with their rhetoric. I hope that it turns out well for everyone.
