Parsons calls for fiscal conservatism

NORTH SMITHFIELD – Ana Parsons, candidate for Town Council, said in a press release that she looks forward to being a new voice for the town. She said she is committed to making informed and fiscally sound decisions to keep North Smithfield moving forward.

“We are in unchartered waters – no one knows what is coming our way with respect to any state and federal aid, and the town must be prepared to make tough decisions. The town must be fiscally conservative, vigilant with expenses and look for ways to increase revenue without raising taxes. We need to look at all economic development opportunities. I also would like to see the town hire a grant writer – even part time – to obtain needed services for the town,” she said.

Parsons and her family moved to North Smithfield in 2008. She was a three-year board member of NSYSA and said you will most likely remember her from her exuberant cheering from the sideline.
