One Square Mile: A talk with the First Warden

PROVIDENCE, RI – As part of our `One Square Mile' reports on Block Island RIPR talks with Block Island top elected official First Warden Kim Gaffett. Her family has deep roots on the island, and Gaffett has been interested in local government since she was a schoolgirl. As she told Rhode Island Public Radio's Ian Donnis on a recent drive around Block Island, the demands facing the island change dramatically with the seasons.

Kim Gaffett is seeking re-election this fall for another two-year term as Block Island's first warden. For more on our series One Square Mile Block Island, visit our website at RIPR dot ORG.
