To the Editor,
Rob Cote continues to attack members of the Warwick government; this time “congratulating” Donna Travis, as if she did something wrong for taking ownership of a piece of land she and her husband Bill have been using for years. Just to be as fair as I can, I did some digging and found the following:
FACT: The land was owned for years by the Oakland beach R.E. Owners Association.
FACT: The land was used almost exclusively by the Travis’s for all of those years.
FACT: Donna and Bill Travis became the new owners on 8-14-2021.
FACT: They paid the full taxes of $754.82 on 7-5-22.
FACT: The taxes have since gone up to $932.28. (an increase of tax revenue of $177.46)
FACT: The Travis family has no more use of this land than they ever did previously.
FACT: The only difference is, they now get to pay taxes on it.
FACT: The Travis family is now giving more tax revenue to the City of Warwick than any previous owner ever has.
FACT: This doesn’t seem to bother ANYONE other than Rob Cote.
These are the facts and they are not disputable. The actions of Donna and Bill Travis were perfectly legal and ethical.
Once again, Rob Cote has labeled himself an “empty can” clanging the loudest.
Happy Summer everyone.
