I had the opportunity to attend the Common Council meeting last evening at City Hall. There was a considerable amount of community members in attendance. This sends such a powerful message to our local leaders when the citizens come and hold our local leaders accountable. The decision to override the Mayors veto of the budget was a unanimous vote by the entire council. I congratulate their effort last evening as they were working on behalf of the struggling times our city, state and nation are facing and the citizens of Kingston was their main focus. Many council members spoke on behalf of YOU the taxpayer, referencing the fact that we can no longer expect the citizens of Kingston to absorb these increasing taxes. Unity is what I witnessed last evening.
To all my Bloggers who have called me a LIAR, please look at the Rules and Regulations that govern my position as the City of Kingston Republican Chairman. Many of you "WanaBees" are behaving like children and need a lesson in telling the truth!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have had concerns and have become overwhelmed with a curiosity regarding who in this professional society of "Corporate America" would use the word to DUMP someone. I have added a definition from the dictionary
dump on : to treat disrespectfully ; especially : belittle , bad-mouth
Now I ask you this question? Would you use this word in your professional career as a lawyer, doctor, teacher, clergy, mayor, mother, father? In a time when we are trying to teach our children character education, respect, and integrity, would we turn around and define the removal of someone as a DUMP.
Let the viewing audience be the judge?????? The definition of this word is aligned with disrespect, to belittle someone, and bad mouth, is everything we should refrain from when teaching our children how to treat their fellow-man. As politicians we have an obligation to encourage, promote and motivate citizens to become active in their local form of government. They look up to their local politicians to be role models who serve as their advocates when they need help and assistance with issues facing them as taxpayers and citizens. As leaders we have an obligation to provide a positive platform of accomplishment, so they do not loose faith in our leadership.
I respectfully remain: City of Kingston Republican Chairman, Jean C. Jacobs

From Mr. Richard Cahills Blog dated 12/11/08.
Do not assume that because the Republican Committee has one person writing inaccurate things on my blog or that because we dumped our city chair that we are not ready to fight for the Council this coming year. Dumping our Chair was the first step toward achieving this goal. We need experienced leadership to start the wind of change.
From: Jean C. Jacobs: Ladies and Gentlemen, the above statement was a post from Mr. Richard Cahill Jr. on his blog about me Jean C. Jacobs on 12/11/08. Ask yourself what has Mr. Richard Cahill ever accomplished in this community except direct attacks against everyone that challenges his authority? This is shameful! I can reassure all of you once again, I remain the Chairman of the City of Kingston Republican Committee. I will keep you posted with the true facts as they relate to the outcome of my position as the City of Kingston Republican Chair. The City of Kingston residents deserve to be informed with the TRUTH. I pledge to all of you that I will only print the truth.
