  • VanalismCoventryDems Sign Vandalized

    We are saddened to see this violent behavior arrive in Coventry. The vandals defaced private property in someone's yard, invading their sense of safety in their own home. We call on the Coventry Republicans to condemn such acts without reservation and to immediately call on their supporters to stop threatening our community.

  • NO Town Council Democrats move to study two girl's softball fields,
    Republicans say NO

    At the 8/16/2021 Coventry Town Council Meeting, Coventry Democrats made a motion to do the engineering study for two girl's softball fields. Republicans on the Council voted that motion down, so that only one field will be studied. Their no vote will at best delay a second field. It is also likely their no vote will increase the overall costs.

    See the recording of the full meeting here.
