On Monday night the Narragansett Town Council swore in the new town manager James Tierney at town hall. The town council appointed him to the position in a 5-0 vote. Tierney came from a position in New York to work in Narragansett.

“When this opportunity for town manager presented itself, I saw the ad, and I applied,” said Tierney after the ceremony Monday. “I love this town and I know this might be the only opportunity to join this team of professionals and make a contribution to my community…I’m so glad that I applied and I’m standing here before you this evening as your choice.”
