The following letter was forwarded to the Westerly Town Clerk’s office to be entered into the record as the position of Wilcox East regarding the Westerly town manager:
The board of directors of Wilcox East Neighborhood Association Inc. is writing this letter to the Westerly Town Council in response to a growing concern that some members of the council are dissatisfied with the performance of the town manager, Derrik Kennedy.
Please be advised that at our regularly scheduled meeting of Jan. 31, the board of directors unanimously passed a resolution in strong support of Mr. Kennedy. The board is of the opinion that he has conducted himself in a professional manner and as such has been a credit to the town. We feel the efforts to remove him would not be in the interest of our neighborhood and the Town of Westerly.
The writer is the president of the Wilcox East Neighborhood Association Inc.
