Signs that Picozzi cares

Posted

To the Editor,

 I would like to commend and thank Mayor Picozzi for the action he has taken by implementing the large and appropriate English-Spanish signs at Conimicut Point. As a lifelong resident of Warwick, I can see that he seems to be someone who cares more about our community than just being a politician; who is trying to get whatever he can from his position. 

I grew up in Highland Beach and have always been a "beach bum". As teenagers my children also gravitated towards our beautiful bay and I can remember people drowning on that sandbar, as far back as my kids were teenagers.  Too little had been done to prevent it. He has done in 2 months what others haven't done in 30 years!

I swam in beautiful Buttonwoods yesterday, then drove to Oakland Beach, and lastly to Conimicut, where I went to view the signs. As I was walking to the beach, I heard mostly Spanish being spoken, and I thought of the Hispanic people who drowned there. Finally, there will be no doubt for anyone to know that there have been drownings there, with those two humongous signs in English and Spanish.

This mayor reminds me of my son and son-in-law as a regular hands-on kind of guy, who is really looking for out for a community. I even noticed work being done on Sandy Lane which has been atrocious between Apponaug and Warwick Avenue for years. Keep up the good work!
