EAST GREENWICH - Could there be a new chairman of the East Greenwich Republican Town Committee in the near future?
In an interview late Monday morning, Chuck Newton, who currently holds the highest position at the RTC, stated he recently submitted a letter of resignation to the executive board for review.
The reasoning behind Newtonâ€™s decision to potentially step down as chairman, he says, stems from his involvement in helping State Senator Nick Kettle (R-Coventry) create a false Facebook profile page that mocked Coventry Representative Scott Guthrie, an incident that resulted in Newton losing his job as communications director of the House Minority Office at the State House.
