    …and once again, what is it, every two weeks? Gunfire in Midtown – let’s say that all of the elitist anti-development activists in this town who are loudly arguing to stop any and all new development in Kingston hit the streets instead and actually use all of their misplaced anger to actually DO something that benefits all of us?

    Huh? Sound like a good idea?

    You folks should be walking the streets in Midtown day and night, organizing as concerned citizens about an
    ongoing and deadly crime situation in our city. You folks should be going door to door, volunteering, putting yourselves front and center to change that behavior.

    But, as is the lazy route, you just argue about new buildings that will actually bring more jobs, more tax revenue, more opportunity.

    Come on kids! You can do better.

    Make a call to the Guardian Angel’s, and ask Curtis Sliwa if he can come and set up a Kingston chapter. He will work with the local citizens, government officials, and police force, as too help create a safe neighbor protected neighborhood. guardian
