Ulster County Wages are low - Stop building Trails, Bring Developers Here

Ulster County Residents:  Please call Mike Hein at 340-3636 and Shayne Gallo at 334-3902 and tell them that our low wages in Ulster County and the City of Kingston are unacceptable.  Tell them that we need to encourage developers to come to the county and the city.  Tell them that we need less emphasis on biking/walking trails and much more emphasis on bringing in high tech and manufacturing employers.  See the bad report on Ulster County wages below.

Let's Take the Train to the Ashokan Reservoir

On Kingston Community Radio, on Wed.,Feb.25th, Walt Maxwell, Ray Rice and I discussed the recently released Catskill Mt.Railroad Business Plan for Kingston to the Glenford Dike at the edge of the Ashokan Reservoir. Let's all call Mike Hein at 340-3636 and tell him to not rip up the 5 miles of track between Hurley Mt.Road near Kenco to the Glenford Dike at the Ashokan Reservoir. Tell him we are all looking forward to taking the CMRR train from the Kingston Plaza to the Reservoir. The business plan says that the train to and from the Reservoir could be running daily every 2 hours, ie. 10am, 12pm, 2pm, 4pm. Isn't this plan exciting? Mike, please don't rip up the tracks to the Glenford Dike. Listen to the audio file of my chat with Walter and Ray by going to the Facebook page for Kingston Community Radio or KCR and listen to the 3 audio files posted on Feb.27th.
