The sweet smell of summer brings many candidates to the Campaign Trail running for office with the #1 GOAL to WIN!. Personalities will flare and agendas can become overwhelmed by Vanity, Arrogance and Intemperance. Leading by Example has always been extremely important to me in presenting my platform for the future. I am a life long resident in the City of Kingston and I have over 35 years of vested service in my community as a volunteer, parent, educator, consultant  and a Fiscal Manager of Business and Finance. My professional background allows me the opportunity to be the most qualified candidate for the next Mayor in the City of Kingston. I am looking forward to many scheduled debates where the Mayoral Candidates can offer their views and platform for the future of the City of Kingston.

Many candidates over time in our governmental system during a campaign season, are intoxicated and obsessed with their own importance and self interest because this is the only power they posses due to lack of credentials and experience for the position. I realize "None of the Candidates have previously served as Mayor so the idea of them having more experience is not a strong argument". Everyone has their own perception of reality. I am running for Mayor in the City of Kingston because I have the background and the credentials to Lead the City of Kingston.

I am passionate and prepared to Make a Difference in the Mayoral Race in the City of Kingston. During the summer months I will be knocking at your door and together we will discuss suggestions, concerns and solutions for Kingston.The best of all leaders is the one who helps people so that eventually they don't need him/her. Then comes the one they love and admire. Then comes the one they fear. The worst is the one who lets people push him/her around. Where there is no trust, people will act in bad faith. I have never been afraid of taking a chance or facing the possibility of defeat. As a candidate you must have a thick skin to take the heat and the comments, because you have confidence in yourself and you know that you are the most qualified person for the job.

Reality, Reform and Recovery. The Reality is we are in a fiscal decline with little hope for the future for the taxpayers, the Reform is my Comprehensive Business Plan for the Future of the City of Kingston. Recovery will occur when I am Elected Mayor in the City of Kingston in November 2011. I am looking forward to the Primary on September 13, 2011.The people will decide by the electorate process who the Republican Mayoral Candidate will be. The POWER OF THE PEOPLE will prevail.

Respectfully submitted,
Jean Jacobs
GOP Candidate for Mayor
City of Kingston

The Prom Queen can't begin to fill your shoes or have the experience required to run the City of Kingston. Garage sales, tree planting, smoking in parks can't compare to the real issues facing the city. There is NO money to run this city. Jean Jacobs you are qualified and ready to be the next Mayor in the City of Kingston. Good Luck to a LIFE LONG true Kingstonian.

Kingston Mayoral candidate urges tax break for repairs to sidewalks. Kingston Daily Freeman article 6/20/2011

Jean Jacobs Response to this article:
Andi Turco Levin: Do you realize that the City of Kingston is facing a rapid fiscal decline and property owners are working two jobs to make their expenses. We should be arriving at solutions to cut the taxes and holding home owners and landlords accountable to maintain their property. Once again the homewoner will take the burden for others who are not taking responsibility of their own property. Currently the homeowners are making up the short fall for all of the properities that are off the tax roll. This percentage is rising every day and presently close to half of the properities in the City of Kingston. This is not fair and equitable distribution. A careful investigation should be in place and yearly audits to make sure they remain tax exempt. There are strict rules and regulations that govern the tax exempt status, which should be monitored annually. Take an accounting of the tax short fall that the County had to make whole this past year MILLIONS when homeowners cannot afford their taxes. WHO PICKS UP THIS EXPENSE?
