The town of Seekonk will miss Art Foulkes. I was a big follower of his show because he got behind the scenes and let you know what was going on! The world needs more Art Foulkes.

Arthur was very passionate about what he believed in, and his motivation was to do the best for Seekonk. Although we didn't always agree on every issue, I respected his opinions and enjoyed discussion and debate with him. He will be missed.
