Newport City Manager Cites Difficult City Council In Decision To Step Down

Jul 24, 2014

Tomorrow is the last day on the job for Newport City Manager Jane Howington.

She’s taken a similar job in Ohio after 2 and a half years running Newport City government. Howington leaves amid reports of friction with the Newport City Council.

Rhode Island Public Radio's Elisabeth Harrison sat down with her at her office in City Hall to talk about her reasons for resigning, and what lies ahead for Newport.
