"I understand Newport's municipal culture. I'm proud to come from a family that has been involved with public service for as long as I can remember. My grandfather Charles McManus ran a successful business and was the city's plumbing inspector until age 83. My aunt, Jane McManus, served the city for over 40 years, ending her career as Newport city clerk in 1996. With my 25 years of civic volunteerism across this city, I know what it takes to find solutions, navigate our bureaucracies at the local and state levels, speak truth to power, and get things done."
