I had the privilege last evening to attend our Mayors 2011 State of The City Address. A very powerful lesson I achieved last evening in listening to our Mayor, was the fact that, "We will move forward together or not at all for the challenges we face are bigger than party, and bigger than politics".
“As I enter my last term of office I am reminded daily that Kingston is a special place,” Sottile said. . . “It is my dream that Kingston will carry on with hope and courage focusing on a bright future that lies ahead. “
This is the "Vision" everyone should embrace and respect the fact that our city deserves Leaders who have a "VISION FOR THE FUTURE" by restoring a sense of HOPE and PRIDE to the people, which is paramount at this time.
I personally thank Mayor James Sottile, Mayor of the City of Kingston, for his last nine years of service and I wish him continued success in all of his future endeavors.

Unfortunately, no one cared to attend the mayor's last State of the City message because it was so sparsely attended, much like the Common Council meetings. It is sad that the community was not interested in hearing the Mayor's accomplishments and hope for the future of the City. Perhaps Ms. Jacobs, you will be the one to carry the torch when Sottile's reign is over.
