N.S. keeps administrator, Hamilton

November 3, 2010

NORTH SMITHFIELD — Town Administrator Paulette Hamilton won re-election easily Tuesday night and thanks to local voters, will also keep her job.
A ballot question that would have changed Hamilton’s elected administrator’s post to a Town Council-appointed town manager was soundly defeated by local voters turning out at the polls, 2,980 opposed to 1,507 in favor.
The administrator proposal, Question 5, was most significant of a list of eight charter questions placed on the ballot. The remaining items covered largely technical and wording changes for the charter.
