Dean Sawyer works so hard for Newport. In the many years I have known Dean, he has been someone that walks his talk. He is an honorable, godly man that has been a brother, husband, dad, police officer, neighbor, mayor and now grandpa, along with a million other roles. He has been consistent and puts his best into whatever he has been tasked with.

I am also sorry that he is going through the events of two years ago in public again. It’s concerning that people are getting one-sided information that is not accurate and are making decisions about his leadership based on things that are not related to Dean being our mayor. Regardless, I have confidence in Dean’s leadership.
