Mayor Dean Sawyer has announced his intention to seek re-election to the Mayor’s seat on the City Council:
Monday night at City Council it was announced that in November the city will have an election for Mayor and three council positions. I made the following statement:
“At this time I hereby announce my intention to run for re-election in November as Mayor of Newport. We have significant projects in the pipeline such as Downtown Revitalization, South Beach and Northside Urban Renewal along with the vitally important Big Creek Dams.
Sadly, these projects have been temporarily sidelined by the Covid 19 pandemic. I pledge to keep these deeply necessary projects “Front-and-Center” while we all work together to restore an atmosphere of normalcy in our beloved community and move it toward the future we all want and deserve.”
