NORTH SMITHFIELD – Cheryl Marandola, a candidate for the North Smithfield Town Council, outlined her reasons for seeking a seat on the five-member board this week.
“I’m running for Town Council to bring a fresh perspective, ensure fiscal responsibility, and work with all my neighbors on the issues that matter to all of us,” Marandola said. “This election is about our community and finding ways to come together, understand our different perspectives, and manage our town finances to set us up for the future.”
“It is my personal mission to make careful financial decisions based on the facts, and I will approach the town’s budget as though the money was my own,” Marandola said. “With important upcoming decisions regarding the town’s assets and finances, I am committed to making objective decisions with the input of both experts and residents to establish and maintain financial stability for our town.”
Marandola said she has learned a lot from serving on the town’s Parks and Recreation Committee since 2019 and Budget Committee since 2020.
“I would love to continue serving the town as a town councilor,” she said, asking voters to choose her name on the ballot on Tuesday, Nov. 8, or sooner for those who take advantage of early voting.
