Former Westerly manager joins Chafee’s staff as special adviser


PROVIDENCE (AP) — The former town manager of Westerly is joining the administration of Rhode Island Gov. Lincoln Chafee.

Chafee announced that Steven Hartford will serve as a special adviser in policy and legislative affairs. The job was held by Kenny Alston, who will become Chafee’s director of operations.

“Kenny and I have worked closely together for several years starting with his service on my campaign for governor,” Chafee said. “I have the utmost confidence in him as he takes on added duties.”

Hartford served as town manager from 2009 until his resignation last year. Hartford, an attorney, had previously worked as Westerly’s town solicitor.

He has also volunteered his time to community service as a member of various boards, including the Westerly Education Endowment Fund, the Greater Westerly/Pawcatuck Area Chamber of Commerce, the Westerly Adult Day Care Center and the Westerly Hospital Parent Company.

Hartford will make $110,000 in his new position.
