SMITHFIELD – Five Republican candidates in the Sept. 13 primary are running for a chance at three seats in Smithfield.

The five-member School Committee has four-year staggered terms, with two members not up for election again until 2024. Members Anthony Torregrossa and Benjamin Caisse, both Democrats, are not up for election.

Ethan, I apologize. I did not realize there were multiple instances of the same story on this site.

Do we get a list of the books they wanna burn on election night?


Let's see how long your comment lasts, Derrick. I asked a similar question yesterday, along with "Did Joe Biden win the last presidential election fair and square, yes or no?", but that didn't last even 24 hours. Now THAT is some heavy-handed moderation! How DARE I ask such a question in light of the existential threat to democracy that far too many Republicans represent.
