The following is a press release and not an Uprise RI-written news story.

This week, the Democratic and Independent candidates for Little Compton School Committee and Town Council participated in two non-partisan forums presented and moderated by The Sakonnet Times. All candidates addressed the real issues facing our community – housing and affordability, senior care, coastal access and climate change, and educating our children.

By contrast; on Friday, October 28, a town-wide mailer was received from the Little Compton Taxpayers Association (LCTA). The LCTA used talking points from fringe Q-Anon groups to implore the community to vote for the entire Republican slate in this years’ elections. They point to the “LGBTQ crowd” targeting the Council because the Republican Council-members refused to fly the “Gay” Flag in 2022. They claim that this LGBTQ influence is “poisoning the town.” The LCTA uses fringe factitious ideas like “Critical Race Theory” and “Sex education starting in Kindergarten” to scare our community.

The Little Compton Democratic Town Committee firmly condemns this hateful mailer because it does not represent the values of our community.

The Little Compton Democratic Town Committee asks the Little Compton Republican Town Committee to join us in condemning the LC Taxpayers Association for disseminating such hateful and untrue rhetoric across our community.
