Restore East Greenwich
On Wednesday, August 1st at some time after 12:01 AM our own Mayor Grant was pulled over and arrested by the East Greenwich Township Police Department. The charges include: • Driving While Intoxicated. • Speeding at 91 Miles Per Hour in a 45 Mile Per Hour Zone. • Careless Driving As the Mayor of East Greenwich, one of Fred Grant’s duties is to act in the best interest of our residents. Driving more than double the speed limit on Kings Highway in Town while intoxicated (as charged of Grant by the EGPD) certainly is not in the best interest of our residents. In fact it is in direct conflict with those duties and it reflects a blatant disregard for the responsibilities as Mayor and as a citizen of our proud community. The recklessness exhibited by one of our elected officials in our Town is not a personal matter; rather it is most certainly a very public safety issue that draws attention to the indifference that he has for the laws of our community and for the safety of our residents. Our residents have the right to exist in our community with an expectation that the officials which they elected will do everything they can to help keep them safe. Certainly, under no circumstances would a resident expect that one of those elected officials would make such deliberate and poor decisions that the official himself would put them in direct and deliberate danger. These actions demonstrate the deliberate decision making of someone who lacks the ability to make sound decisions on his own behalf let alone those of an entire community. Considering the Oath that the Mayor took, his track record of criminal activity, and his complete disregard for the public safety of our residents that are his duty to help protect, PLEASE JOIN ME BY SIGNING THIS PETITION ASKING FOR MAYOR GRANT’S RESIGNATION. Only his resignation will take East Greenwich out of the negative spotlight and put us back on the right path in restoring trust between the committee and our residents.
