The superintendent of the Rhode Island State Police is becoming the town manager of South Kingstown.
Colonel James Manni is set to transition to the new job next month after the Town Council approved the appointment on Monday. Manni used to be the town manager of Narragansett.
“Colonel Manni is a man of great integrity who has led this agency with the highest degree of professionalism and dedication,” said Governor McKee. “It is clear to anyone who knows him, that his commitment to the Rhode Island State Police is truly remarkable, and his leadership, particularly over these past three years, has been exemplary. He raised his hand and stepped forward, serving during some of the most challenging times in our history, and the State of Rhode Island is most grateful.”
He will remain at the helm of the State Police until April 29.
