A collection of newspaper clippings with dates ranging from June 9, 1954, to January 19, 1955. Clippings are arranged in chronological order. During this time Michael DeCiantis was serving as the West Warwick Town Solicitor. Scrapbook 10 focuses primarily on West Warwick politics as a senate election draws close. Although he was not a candidate in the running, Michael DeCiantis played a key role in the democratic nominee's campaign as the West Warwick Democratic Party Leader. Developments in the ongoing illegal shellfishing situation are covered as well. The water rate hike is featured also, though less extensively as politics and shellfishing. Some pages have articles that obscure other items on the same page. In this case, the same page has been shot multiple times to show all content.
