A Street Crime Attack Team

Kudos to our new Police Chief. He has decided to create a street crime team in response to the crime problem in the City of Kingston.

Several people have contacted me reminding me of my proposal for "SCAT", a "street crime attack team", highlighted during the recent campaign.

My answer has been that I am not interested in getting credit of any kind. I am just glad that crime is being addressed, and I hope that street crime team has the desired results.

Gallo Elected Mayor

I wish to offer congratulations to Shayne Gallo. He was elected Mayor of the City of Kingston earlier tonight. I stopped by his victory party and shook his hand. He worked hard and deserved to win.

As for me, I walk away with my head held high. I feel I ran an honorable campaign. I did very well in the debates. I wish I could have gotten a one on one race because I know it would have been much closer. Shayne might still have won, but it would have been much much closer.

Nevertheless, Shayne deserved to win. He worked hard and he earned it. I wish him nothing but success.

Election Day

The polls will close in just over 1 hour. However the results go, I just want to thank the people of Kingston for begin so kind to me on the campaign trail. I enjoyed meeting so many people.

Kingston has many problems, but I remain confident that we, as Kingstonians, can solve them.

The Final Debate

Today was the final debate of the campaign. It took place at the Daily Freeman. It was an excellent debate, though I still think Mr. Ladin should have been invited.

KURA "Meet the Candidates"

Rather than have candidates appear and give oral answers, the Kingston Uptown Residents' Alliance (KURA) sent questionnaires to all 4 candidates for Mayor, the 2 Alderman-at-Large candidates, and all of the Alderman candidates.

Sadly, most candidates did not respond. In the Mayor's race, 3 of the 4 responded. The answers have been posted. Click here to see them.

I apologize for the length of my answers, but they requested specifics.
