I am honored and privileged as a member of my community to become involved in a program that has touched my heart and my soul. If you want to witness Magic and the wonder of working together, I suggest you stop by and share a moment of your time. I will be volunteering my time with the children and the wonderful dedicated staff on Friday Nights at the Everette Hodge Center from 5:30 on. Working Together for the betterment of our community.
Take a moment of your time and recognize the importance of the Gift of Life. Just a few weeks ago a young man lost his life in Mid-Town Kingston which will affect this community for a life time. We must come together and work with the children who will become our future leaders. How do you keep the magic alive? Get involved and inspire others and you can have the power of changing the life of a child.

My neighbor Michael D'Arcy came to my home last Sunday with a flyer regarding a recent incident in our neighborhood. I agree with Michael and building something positive out of an ugly incident will energize the community in creating a city wide neighborhood watch group.
Get People involved and keep them involved.

In an effort to work together in the City of Kingston, I was energized and motivated when I attended a Ward 5 Neighborhood Meeting at City Hall, hosted by Alderman, Ms. Jennifer Fuentes, on Friday 2/12/10. Ladies and Gentleman I urge all of you to take ownership and recognize the importance of becoming an involved Citizen in Ward 5 and the City of Kingston. The Block by Block initiative pilot project in the City of Albany, is most impressive and deserves serious consideration. "There are times we must put politics aside and work together for the betterment of our fine city". This is a statement that our Mayor made reference to in his State of the City Speech last week.
Together we can restore HOPE and realize how powerful our voice can be in the process.

Block by Block
Block by Block is an initiative designed to enhance the quality of life in neighborhoods. City staff is moving block by block, building by building and lot by lot through the City of Albany to strategically address code compliance, public safety, abandoned buildings and community development. At the same time, the initiative is taking a hard look at the City's business model and information flow to create an updated and more efficient system for communication between City departments.

Well I have been out and about working and partnering with my public so I can continue to be a voice for YOU the PEOPLE. Jacobs Live is always keeping her pulse on the media and ready to bring you the story. Starting the new Year I had the privilege to attend the New Years Day swearing in Ceremony of the Kingston Common Council Committee Members. A New Year a New beginning was the message throughout City Hall. I also had the privilege to attend the swearing in Ceremony for Mr. Donald Williams, and Mr. Fred Wadnola. The energy and the motivation in the audience was superior and heartwarming. This is a time for celebration and restoring hope to the people. I have had many extraordinary and distinguished guests on my Show "Jacobs Live People for People" over the last several months who include, Mr. Brian Shapiro Executive Director of the UCSPCA, Mr. Robert Conklin Executive Director of the YMCA, Dr. Ellis Lader, prominent Cardiologist, Mr. Art Richter, (Health Care That Matters Producer). Ms. Su Marcy, V.P. Ulster United Way, Mr. Edward Gaddy, Chairman, Conservative Party of Ulster County, Ms. Laura Petit, Ulster County Legislator, Ms. Jennifer Fuentes, Alderman Ward 5 City of Kingston and Mr. Leonard Walker, Former Alderman Ward 3, City of Kingston and Founder of the Guardian Angels Chapter in the City of Kingston. I also had the privilege to attend Mr. George Phillips Campaign Meet and Greet at the Holiday Inn. He is setting the platform for a very positive campaign as the Republican Candidate for Congress. His message to the audience was strong and filled with HOPE for the future. I also attended the State of the Union Address at City Hall by the Honorable James Sottile. I urge everyone to take ownership and realize the importance of attending these meetings. Your tax dollars are working each and every day and your voice is required in order for us to focus and move forward. We must put politics aside and work for the betterment of our community. I also attended the Kingston City School District Round Table at the George Washington School on 2/8/10. I commend the KCSD Administration and the Board of Education for realizing the importance of including the public and giving them a voice in the process. The highlight of my attendance at meetings recently was the Ulster County Public Health Monthly meeting on 2/8/10. Ladies and Gentleman having been a professional in the Medical Health Care Industry for many years, I announce to you, Ulster County is most fortunate to have hired Ulster County Public Health Director Dr. LeMar Hasbrouck. His presentation and Mission and Vision for the future was filled with a passion for success and a persistence to Make A Difference for the residents of Ulster County. Continuing Education and the willingness to partner with the Medical Health Community will be the key to attaining his goals. Everyone should welcome him and his family to Ulster County. We must all take a positive approach by preserving our heritage and working together to improve our community. LEAD BY EXAMPLE Please contact me with your comments, ideas, and suggestions for the future.
