I am a Mayoral Candidate in the City of Kingston and I have been your advocate for the students, educators and taxpayers for over 35 years. I attended the KCSD Board of Education Candidates Night at the M. Clifford Miller Middle School on Tuesday May 10, 2011. There are 9 candidates running for 4 Board of Education seats on May 17, 2011.

The evening was filled with a variety of questions from the public which included topics such as, hiring a new Superintendent, maintenance of our school buildings, employee health benefits and the elimination of a local neighborhood school. I was most impressed with all of the candidates and their responses.

Serving on the Board of Education is truly a rewarding experience and you are held accountable by the Community at Large because they put their trust and confidence in you.There is a considerable amount of homework but the sacrifice of your time and service to your community and to education makes it all worth while.

Please take time on Tuesday May 17, 2011 from 7:00 AM-9:00 PM and VOTE: The proposed KCSD budget for 2011-2012 is: $141.017.676.

Also there are 9 Candidates running for 4 seats on the Kingston City School District Board of Education.

A Special Thank You and appreciation to the KCSD District Wide Parent Council and the League of Women Voters for organizing and facilitating the Candidates Night at the M. Clifford Miller Middle School. 

Your Community Activist,
Jean Jacobs
