FOSTER – The Foster Town Council unanimously agreed last week to join a proposed coalition of eight Rhode Island rural towns to protect against potential upcoming legislation that would override local zoning ordinances to reach low-to-moderate-income housing goals.

During the Jan. 12 Town Council meeting, Sen. Gordon Rogers presented his plan to create a coalition of eight rural communities, to this point set to include the seven towns of Foster, Scituate, Glocester, Richmond, Hopkinton, Exeter and West Greenwich, to combat an “oppressive state legislature.”

The East Side libs don't care about rural communities. Their sanctuary city policies can't handle the overload, so they'll shove their failed policies down the throats of towns that know how to run things properly. Fight back now or suffer later!

“East side libs”???

Welcome to the discussion.

We’ve recently revised our comment policy to help us be more consistent and to be in keeping with our goal to promote a better community conversation. If a comment is deleted, rather than complain about it, simply try again by modifying the verbiage.

Comments that will be deleted include:
  • Those that include threatening, derogatory, obscene, vulgar, lewd, racist, sexist or sexually-oriented language. This includes any name-calling/nicknames of people both on the local and national level.
  • Those with accusations or allegations that can’t be proven, or that try to build a negative narrative about one person or entity over time through a clearly coordinated campaign. If you believe the backstory really needs to be shared, send us a letter to the editor or a story pitch with your name and contact information.
  • Those with outright lies or falsehoods.
Please use the 'Report' link on each comment to let us know if you believe a comment was allowed in error.

What we at The Breeze would truly like to see are comments that add history and context to a story or that use criticism constructively.
