The town of Tiverton has a new leader.

The Town Council on Monday named Matthew J. Wojcik, 45, a Cumberland resident and most-recently the director of economic development for the city of Woonsocket, to the position of town administrator, effective immediately.

Wojick will be paid $90,000 per year, according to his contract, which was signed at last night's meeting.

We've put in a call to Wojcik and will post more details about his thoughts on the new job and the key issues facing Tiverton in the coming days.

He's not related and doesn't know anyone in town - Good start! Welcome to OZ, Matt! May the force be with you.

Mr. Kaffee sounds like a Democrat with an ax to grind. I'm hoping Mr. Wojcik is a conservative, because we have way too many liberals in this town. I wish him well.

Those calling for a cut in the school budget might be supprised. The tax payers of Portsmouth several years ago wanted to cut their school budget. The got enough signatures to have a special FTM and cut the school budget. As it turns out in Rhode Island if the school dept feels that the town did not adequately fund the schools they can sue the town under the Caruolo Act. The Portsmouth schools won the lawsuit and every taxpayer in town got a supplemental tax bill for their share of the lawsuit. Be careful in cutting the school budget.

I'm a Republican thank you. Partisanship aside, I will allow you to make your own opinion in the time to come. Ask anyone that knows him and you will find that they can't believe he landed this job.
