After a two-year hiatus from the City Council, former Newport Mayor Harry Winthrop is ready for a return.

Winthrop, who served terms from 1990 to 1993, in 1995 and from 2011 to 2012, announced his candidacy for a citywide seat on the City Council on Sunday.

Winthrop served as mayor from 2012 to 2014.

In prepared remarks, Winthrop said his agenda is focused on addressing core infrastructure issues, such as securing funding for the realignment of the Claiborne Pell Bridge ramps and following through on the acquisition of Navy property that was the former home of the Newport Naval Hospital.
