Maj. Ramsay, who’s been with West Warwick for 23 years, began his career as an officer and worked his way up to the second highest position in the department.

Sewer facility in need of facelift

July 15, 2012

EAST GREENWICH — Every time he plans out his annual budget, East Greenwich Public Works director Joseph Duarte has to pretty much prepare for the worst when it comes to his sewage treatment facility.

Within the past calendar year, Duarte has had four huge disks near the rotating biological compactor, one of the more mechanical portions of the treatment plant, collapse because of the heavy corrosive environment where gas converts to acid in the condensation process.

GOP won't endorse Martin

July 15, 2012

Paul Martin will run for another term on the East Greenwich School Committee as a Republican this coming election year.

Just don’t expect the East Greenwich Republican Town Committee to offer its support for him.

Martin, who looks for another term on the School Committee, will not be endorsed by the Republican Town Committee – a committee he’s been a member of since 1996 – for his campaign because of his attendance, or lack thereof, at School Committee meetings in recent years.

Read all about it in the July 12 Pendulum.
