There are ten candidates running for the seven seats on the Newport School Committee in the upcoming General Election.

What’s Up Newp this week asked all ten candidates to join us for a live video conversation. During the conversations we offer the opportunity to candidates to introduce themselves to voters, talk about the issues that they see as priorities, and share why voters should vote for them in the upcoming General Election.

Of note, Aida Neary who is currently on the School Committee is not seeking re-election.

What’s Up Newp is booking the candidates on a first-come-first-serve basis and around candidates’ schedules. Check back for updates.
