Newport This Week - Cullen for Council

“I’m not a civic rookie. I’m running for a Newport City Council seat because this is a critical time to steer Newport in a smarter, more strategic, and economically sustainable direction. The economic shock from COVID — exposing our lack of a diversified economy — reveals our old-school 20th Century mindset. It’s time for me to put my decades of volunteerism and knowledge of Newport’s civic life to use. I have the time, talent, and tenacity to lead us in a more resilient direction.


With a platform filled with reform concepts, I know it’s essential to have authentic resident involvement. Only by working collaboratively will we tackle the myriad of community concerns. Broader participation, driven by facts and the benefit of experienced leadership, will move Newport ahead for everyone, not just the favored few.


As I journey through this campaign season, however, it may evolve during the COVID crisis, I look forward to meeting residents from all corners of our city, listening to concerns and ideas, and sharing my vision and plans to move Newport in a new, more stable and sustainable direction. Join me on this journey. Visit: Beth02840.com and Facebook to learn more.”

Beth Cullen throws hat into city council race

Beth Cullen, a fourth-generation Newport resident with a long history of community involvement and civic activism, declared her candidacy Monday for a Newport City Council At-Large seat. Cullen is the past president of the Point Association, co-founder of the Newport Nextdoor social media platform, and a long-time education reform advocate. 

After signing the candidacy papers, Cullen said “I’m bringing my strong voice, dynamic approach, and strategic vision to the council table.  During the ongoing economic turmoil, we’ve got to be smarter and more intentional. I have the time, the talent, and the tenacity necessary to work hard for residents.”

Former Mayor Gordon Endorses Beth

Cullen’s run is endorsed by former Newport Mayor and School Committee Chairman, David S. Gordon, who said, “I’ve known Beth for over 25 years, she is a hard worker who cares deeply for Newport. As both mayor and chair of the school committee, I worked together with Beth on many civic improvements and education reform. She will bring a strong, experienced voice to the city council.”
