Newport Shipyard's annointed Mayor, Justin "Juggy" Smith has been a fixture at the Shipyard for the last four years.
Juggy and his trailer with its distinctive ALPINIST graphics are at the epicenter of the yard and no one can miss him. There is even a rumor that he lives in his RIOT trailer and comes out only to lobby for mayoral votes during lunchtime at Belle's.
Juggy is Newport all the way, a graduate of Rogers HS and URI, he is an experienced sailor and has the waterfront covered.
