MAYORAL CANDIDATE SAFETY FIRST, By JEAN JACOBS
Curtis Sliwa, Founder and CEO
"Curtis Sliwa has stepped into the national spotlight, catching the attention of parents, the media, and the Federal Government ".
I had the privilege once again to meet with Curtis Sliwa in Poughkeepsie on Saturday July 23, 2011. We sat down to discuss many of the safety issues facing our fine city and across our nation. I worked with Curtis Sliwa in 2006 when the Guardian Angels Chapter was formed in Kingston, NY. It is the willingness to make a difference and the dedicated leadership to community service and personal responsibility to recognize the importance of working together by providing alternatives to violence, destructive behavior, bullying, gangs, and drugs.
As Mayor of the City of Kingston, I will welcome Mr. Curtis Sliwa and his team of Guardian Angels to
Champion our fine city with their presence and to work with our local law enforcement officials
and the Ulster County Sheriff's Department so together we can create a unique partnership that will benefit our youth and all citizens.
For over 30 Years The Guardian Angels has played a significant role in making cities all over the world safer places to live and raise our children.
Jean C. Jacobs
