SOUTH KINGSTOWN â€“ The Chamber of Commerceâ€™s Board of Directors voted Wednesday to oppose Governor Chafeeâ€™s proposed budget and tax plan.
â€śOur chamberâ€™s position is to say no to the sales tax expansion proposal,â€ť Joe Iacoi, Executive Director of the South Kingstown Chamber of Commerce said. â€śFrankly, the more I learn of it Iâ€™m surprised of the sweeping nature of what's being debated.â€ť
The Board stated that it opposes the tax plan for many reasons, including that it believes the estimated millions of dollars paid to the Rhode Island by the tax increase will be taken out of an already weak economy.
NORTH KINGSTOWNâ€”When Allison Chatowsky talks about homelessness and the effect it has on the children not only in her kindergarten classroom at Quidnessett Elementary School but throughout North Kingstown, thereâ€™s one thing she feels passionate about above all.
â€śWhat more would I like to see done?,â€ť she asks on a recent Friday afternoon. â€śI would definitely like to see our children not be labeled. All children should be identified and treated equally.â€ť
Chatowsky is not alone in her view. In fact, her school goes above and beyond its duties to try to put every child on equal footing.
