Candidate Statement: Jeremy Allen

For the mud — Money wasted on parking lot  

Posted Sunday, September 30, 2018 12:00 am

My name is Jeremy Allen and I am running for Little Compton Town Council to better protect the environment of our town.

The current Town Council has spent the past four years not making an easy decision that land that the taxpayers of Little Compton spent over $2.25 million to preserve cannot be a parking lot. This inaction has led to a costly lawsuit that has cost the taxpayers $224,800 over what is customarily spent on legal fees.

I asked the Little Compton Town Council president directly, in a meeting, if he had it to do all over again would he change anything and he said no.  The legal fees could have been used to pave roads or put in ramp access to the town hall or even to cut taxes. If you want to stop wasting money on lawyers and preserve the gem that is Little Compton vote for the five Democrats running in November.

Candidate Statement: Rita Kenahan

Kenahan — I'll work to keep Little Compton schools safe, secure

My name is Rita Kenahan and I am running for School Committee in Little Compton to continue to enhance and reinforce the good work being done by our current School Committee.

I am quite pleased with the actions they have taken to investigate measures that can be implemented to secure our school. The School Safety and Security Committee has done thorough research and delivered meaningful recommendations. Critical decisions must now be made to take the appropriate actions for our students, teachers, administration and community. I look forward to contributing to this process.
