    • Black Lives Matter
      The Black Lives Matter movement is being felt in Newport, bringing forth strong feelings on all sides of the issue. Do you believe substantive actions by the City (beyond officials and employees undergoing sensitivity training and providing black history and humanities additions to school curricula) are called for?  If no, explain your position. If yes, what specific actions would you promote?

      In this 30th anniversary year of the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) Newport is considered by many to be inhospitable to persons with disabilities.  How would you address this?  Specifically, what should be done in the lower Broadway and Washington Square areas to improve accessibility?  Should ADA requirements be a part of licensing agreements and City reviews of licenses in Newport?
