Kim Salerno, candidate for Newport City Council Ward 2, joined What’s Up Newp to participate in What’s Up Newp’s video voter guide.

To help voters stay informed, What’s Up Newp has invited all candidates running for Newport City Council to join us for a video interview where they will have the opportunity to answer and address a set of questions — about Covid-19, the school bond, tourism, affordability, and more.

Each candidate will be asked the same questions, all of which came from the What’s Up Newp crew and our readers.
