To Kingston Council - Fix Budget, not Climate

Keep Climate Change Out of Kingston.  We do not want Kingston Council people to join the Federal Government and Mayor Bloomberg in NYC in Over-regulating our lives.  The Kingston proposal talks about limiting single occupancy cars.  Stay out of this area.  To the Kingston Council, I have something for you to work on.........Let's hear some serious debate about solving Kingston's degrading budget problems by cutting the Kingston Fire Dept. $8 Million budget in HALF to $4 Million by transitioning to a Fire Dept. which uses PAID fireman firetruck drivers and VOLUNTEER firefighters. Come on Kingston Council, start talking about financial "Game Changers" to save the City of Kingston from further decay.

We are all waiting with baited breath to see if Mayor Gallo will be tough with the final union contracts. Let's face it. Kingston needs "game-changing" contracts not baby step contracts. If the union contracts can be written with the local taxpayer's well-being as the first priority. Kingston wins. If the union makes gains, Kingston loses. Look around. There is No Growth in Kingston. Without economic growth, there is economic death.
