CRU year in review


The end of the year is upon us, and I am continually amazed at how fast time flies! During this contemplative moment, Charlestown Residents United wanted to take time to reflect and thank you for helping to make the following accomplishments possible.

·     Together, we stopped the CCA Town Council majority from taking $3.1 million dollars from the budget surplus and spending it on an unknown construction project
·     CRU’s supported Town Council candidate, Vice-President Deb Carney, proposed a tax cut for everyone, which was approved by the voters.
·     During the last campaign, CRU proposed a Charlestown Clean-Up Day. The First Charlestown Clean-Up day was held on April 27 and CRU supporters collected 40 bags of litter.
·     Deb Carney advocated for temporary lights at Puchalski Field (behind Town Hall) for the Chariho Cowboys Football and Cheerleading so the children could practice during the week. With overwhelming community support for the Cowboys, temporary lights were approved.

CRU ran on a platform of representing all of Charlestown. Everyone’s voice should be heard. Together, we stopped an unwise spending plan, voted for a tax reduction, cleaned up the Town and supported our athletes.

Charlestown Residents United is working to “put the Town back in Charlestown”. Thank you for all your support and help throughout 2019. May you have a wonderful season and our best to you in 2020!

Also, don't forget the New Year's Eve bonfire in Ninigret Park. The fire will be lit around 5 pm. It's always great fun and it promises to be reasonably warm this year. This is the 13th year that the bonfire was designed and built by CRU supporter Frank "Frankie Pallets" Glista. The Westerly Sun recently wrote about it here.
