With only incumbents currently running,
"THE TEAM THAT CARES" leader Jean Jacobs calls for action!!!!
I don't think anyone should run unopposed. I'll be disheartened if no one comes to the forefront.
With only 4 days remaining for potential Kingston School District Board of Education candidates to file petitions I ask you to consider taking the challenge.
Read the article in the Kingston Times this weeks April 23, 2009 page 3.

I am reaching out to my Republican/Conservative Constituents and all the Citizens in the City of Kingston and County of Ulster to better understand what is your platform during the next governmental election in the City of Kingston and Ulster County in 2009? Where is "THE FIRE IN YOUR BELLY" attitude to take this election by storm. We need to hear from you. Are you considering the possibility of running for Alderman or Legislator? Do you feel you have the time, energy and motivation to win? Are you ready for the challenge? Do you have the leadership skills and funding to make this happen?

One of my goals, when I served as the Republican Chairman in the City of Kingston, was to develop a unified effort in making the people realize they had the power to make change. We can create this machine of opportunity and the time is now.

Where are our LEADERS? Where is the noise and your willingness to serve?

The POWER OF THE PEOPLE is a powerful machine and "We the People" have the ability to make change.

Make some noise. Your comments please!!!!!!

Well I return to many county and city issues that I have been reading in the local papers and surfing on the local blogs. Despite many differences, I feel we continue to blossom in the great City of Kingston. Do we need reform and a change in direction, ABSOLUTELY. Can we get there by working together to attain our goals as citizens and politicians. ABSOLUTELY. Will we get there if we learn to focus our energy on the issues and LEAD BY EXAMPLE ABSOLUTELY. This will be an exciting year and I can feel the energy, motivation and a willingness of the people to step up to the plate and make a difference is alive and well. GO KINGSTON!!!

Several weeks ago I posted on my blog the need for citizens to make a commitment and consider running for the Kingston City School Board. The time is now for concerned citizens to step up or step aside. The clock is ticking and time is running out. Please set aside some time and consider taking the challenge and run for the Kingston City School Board. You can make a difference. Please contact 'THE TEAM THAT CARES ' if you are interested in becoming a candidate for the Kingston City School Board. 338-1366 or 331-7497.

This weekend Saturday April 18, 2009 will mark the 13th, Annual Kids Classic in the City of Kingston. BRAVO to Mr. Dan Bigelow who was the original founder of the Kids Classic in 1996. Mr. Bigelow was the Principal of the J.W. Bailey Middle School at that time and I had the privilege of working with him that year serving as a parent volunteer for the PTA. His dream is a living testimony to him today and all of the children that he influenced as a LEADER and EDUCATOR for over thirty years in the Kingston City School District. Good Luck to all of the KIDS this Saturday that will be participating. I will be there to cheer you on!!!!!!!!! KUDOS now to the YMCA KIDS CLASSIC.

The KICK OFF on Sunday April 26, 2009 will mark the celebration of the 28th Kingston Classic 10K Race in the City of Kingston. This is a wonderful day to bring people together and prove to yourself you can do this. I have run this race for many years with friends and family. I look forward to seeing you there!!!!!

Happy Spring!!!!!!!!!!
