POLL: Who Should Be Newport's Next Mayor?

The City Council will decide Newport's next mayor during the council meeting on July 25.

Due to a policy conflict with his new position as Chief Clerk of Rhode Island District Court, during next Wednesday's City Council meeting. 

According to the policy, Waluk cannot hold public office as Chief Clerk. 

The City of Newport's charter states that the remaining city councilors will vote to decide who will step in as Mayor. 

The open seat will go to last election's next highest vote-getter, Stephen Coyne. 

Who do you want to see as Newport's next Mayor?

Whoever doesn't cave in to labor negotiations and different special causes that just don't make any sense and cost the taxpayer to suffer.
