To the Editor:
After reading the comments and accusations of my opponent for the Ward 8 council seat questioning my loyalties to the Warwick residents served by the Kent County Water Authority, I feel compelled to respond. The criticisms that were made indicated a complete lack of knowledge and were responded to accordingly.
The general manager of the Kent County Water Authority confirmed my responses. My loyalties are to my family, the City of Warwick, the State of Rhode Island and the United States of America and are confirmed below:
Born, raised and educated in the City of Warwick and the University of Rhode Island.
Military service to my country and state are 22 years in military service and the National Guard.
Served our Continental Little League for 15 years.
Served on the Warwick City Council for a total of 12 years in Ward 8.
Served on the Kent County Water Authority board of directors for the past 17 years, representing the City of Warwick in a strong and effective manner.
My loyalties have been proven and I have been and will be dedicated.
Where are your loyalties, Ms. Jennings?
Joseph E. Gallucci
