Jacob Mather

NORTH KINGSTOWN – Following the resignation of Tony Jones from the North Kingstown School Committee, the town council appointed a new member to fill the empty position. 

Jones resigned from the school committee because he was moving to Narragansett, making him ineligible to serve on the committee. He also resigned from the arts council, which he sat on for five years. 

“I truly appreciate the opportunity to serve the community for the past year as a member of the school committee, as well as the past five years on the arts council,” Jones wrote in a letter of resignation to the town council.

Jacob Mather, the current parent-teacher organization (PTO) president at Hamilton Elementary School, was appointed by the town council on Monday to serve as a school committee member until Dec. 7, 2020–the end of Jones’ original term.
