Portsmouth Superintendent Fails to Register Vehicle in RI

Despite the state law requiring registration after 30 days, Portsmouth's superintendent is still driving around with Illinois license plates, according to an investigative report.

Despite a state law requiring drivers to register their vehicle within 30 days of moving to the Ocean State, one school superintendent has failed to comply. 

Portsmouth Superintendent of Schools Lynn Krizic, who became superintendent in summer 2011, is still driving her 2003 Saab Turbo with Illinois license plates, according to an investigation by The Hummel Report. 

Krizic, a Little Compton resident, told Jim Hummel she failed to change the license plates and register her vehicle despite living in Rhode Island for more than 18 months. 

Krizic's former town of residence, Elmhurst, IL, does not charge property taxes on vehicles, according to the report.

Thanks again for bragging about breaking the law Joe. The Rhode Island State Police and the ATF should be paying you a visit very soon.

Every leader will have detracters. Some people gain a sense of self importance by diminishing others. This is a minor issue.

Diminishing others is not a minor issue. Gaining a sense of self importance by diminishing others is not ok for anyone and especially not ok for somebody who is in a position of power in a school district. Diminishing is an incorrect term. Call it what it is...bullying and manipulating. Have you ever talked to Krizic? Have you ever had a conversation with her? Don't leave your guard down, principals and teachers. If you do not pay close attention, Krizic will begin to suck you into her way of thinking which is always, of course, the right way.

And now The Elmhurst Patch has The Portsmouth Patch on their site...Wonderful! And there is a 6+ min interview on http://www.hummelreport.org/ about this also… This Portsmouth parent does not understand why she can do this for 18 months and my son gets written up for making flatulence noises on the bus just for that one day…really!!! And the bus monitor said it was bullying. Really?? What about the bullying that this monitor, (who is supposed to be an adult) is allowed to do…Really??

Bottom line....Which state is she registered to vote in....That determines her residency. I've known many military people that maintained their voting rights in their domiclle state and therefore their vehicle is legally registered in that state. I'd have to know all the facts, and obviously we don't.
