SOUTH KINGSTOWN â Although Election Day can be seen as a relaxing day off for some people, for others it is a day to work hard for what you believe in either by working at the polls or campaigning for a favorite candidate.
Campaign workers manned their polling places to support their candidates and to exercise their right to vote.
âIt's what you believe in. We have the right to [vote]. A lot of people have fought and died for that right to vote so why wouldn't you?â Ken Plymesser said, who campaigned outside South Kingstown High School for his favorite candidates.
Be sure to pick up a copy of this week's edition of The Chariho Times to find out where to vote, who's running for what, which questions are to be decided, and much more on today's general election.
NARRAGANSETT--On Oct. 18 the town council scheduled a work session for Oct. 25 to discuss the plans for Canonchet Farm. The goal of Terrence Fleming's presentation before the council, according to Michael DeLuca of Narragansett's Planning Department was to "try and give more background and body to the overall recommendation of the planning board to the council." The town council will have the final say as to what becomes of the property.
In past meetings, a majority of members have favored less development to the leafy property.
