TTA-Endorsed Candidates Win Big

Congratulations to TTA candidates who won seats on the Town Council:

  • Donna Cook
  • Justin Katz
  • Nancy Driggs

Congratulations to TTA candidates who won seats on the Budget Committee:

  • Jeff Caron
  • Joe Sousa
  • Thomas Haley
  • Sheri Aakre
  • with Justin LaCroix on deck when Justin Katz moves to the Town Council

And thank you Tiverton voters for rejecting the following detrimental charter changes:

  • Question 5, which would have expanded officials’ ability to use public resources to affect elections
  • Question 6, which would have given the Town Solicitor new, unaccountable power to brush aside charter complaints
  • Question 7, which would have cut the Personnel Board out of some hiring decisions
  • Question 10, which would have given the Town Council control over casino gambling revenue
  • Question 11, which would have effectively gutted the financial town referendum (FTR)
