A big help with books

Posted

Pilgrim Salutation Sophia Carter is the recipient of the Senator Michael McCaffrey $1,000 scholarship presented annually to a student who has demonstrated extraordinary leadership. Principal Gerald Habershaw said Carter, who was one of the school’s top leaders, involved in the Rhode Island Model Legislature and one of two students statewide to participate in the U.S. Senate Program, was a natural choice for the award that McCaffrey funds from campaign contributions. Carter said the funds will help with the purchase of books at Boston College, where she plans to study political science and pre-law. She is seen here with Senator McCaffrey, her father, Stephen, and Habershaw. (Warwick Beacon photo)

Congratulations Sophia Carter and all her teachers for the many hours of hard work that must have gone into this collective effort. This is another "feel-good" story that will attract new students, parents, AKA "taxpayers" to Warwick that will lessen the tax-burden on the rest of us.

Congrats also to Senator McCaffrey for showing his leadership by sponsoring the program.

Happy Summer everyone.

Delusional Corrente,

Once again fails to realize that the average proficiency of graduating seniors in Warwick schools for Math is 17% and for Science is 11%. Congratulations to all those who worked to rule for 2 years, never having a parent teacher conference, no school dances, etc...

Corrente also fails to realize that his "ACLU court case" pertaining to him displaying his campaign signs was specific to PRIVATE PROPERTY! Although he continues to try to convince people otherwise.

Dear Readers,

Normally I don't comment when Rob Cote does, but this time I will.

1. He says I fail to realize the proficiency of graduating seniors. He's wrong. I attend almost ALL of the School Committee meetings and have for years. I have met with every member of the School Committee as well as Dr. Phil. I have also solicited the opinions of dozens of teachers, the Warwick Teachers Union, hundreds of parents, thousands of taxpayers, and even some bright-minded students. So, yeah, I do understand the serious proficiency problem. It just has NOTHING to do with the above article! He knew that. He just wanted to misdirect the reader away from the original topic.

2. Rob Cotes' "political insiders" tried to intimidate me by attempting to enforce a zoning ordinance that is AGAINST THE U.S.CONSTITUTION. They failed miserably. I went to the ACLU and they sent me and Cotes' political insiders, documents that proved their claim against me was illegal. Those documents also proved that the City of Warwick was COURT-ORDERED to remove that zoning ordinance ten years ago and they STILL haven't done it! That proved that Cote and the political insiders tried to enforce a zoning ordinance that they all knew was UNCONSTITUTIONAL! I call that "Dirty tricks - Politics". And, just so Cote can't pretend that he didn't know, it was NOT limited to private property! The political insiders failed to bully me. So did Rob Cote.

Rob Cote has told disgusting lies about me and my family. He has stolen dozens of my campaign signs. He is a liar and a thief.

Please read his comments with that in mind.

Happy Summer everyone.
