SOUTH KINGSTOWN - Town Council President Ella Whaley told the Narragansett Times Monday night that she will not be running for re-election this year.
Whaley, who served on the school committee for eight years and the town council for another eight years, said that she wonâ€™t have time this year between trips back and forth from Florida to best serve the community.
â€śThis is 16 years for me,â€ť she said. â€śMy husband would really like me back. Next winter I am going to be like a snow bird - back and forth from Florida.â€ť
The recent harsh winter cold may have had something to do with the departure of the long-time volunteer and representative of South Kingstown.
â€śIâ€™m trying to get out of the winter,â€ť she said.
