Alderman Reynolds has the priviledge and responsibility to represent us in the 7th ward. The seventh ward has many development opportunities which were stifled by the City failing to extend water & sewer lines to existing City property. MOst of the miles in the seventh ward do not have storm drains, curbs, or sidewalks, but many have rural mailboxes. Finally last year water lines were run from Kingston street north towards the hamlet of East Kingston (part of the Town of Ulster). Thanks to Alderman Reynolds professionalism, we in the 7th ward are finally getting a share of City Planning and Infrastructure. Once we get done bonding a repair job to help the uptowners from Linderman Avenue who made money from a development but were not required to pay into a capital reserve fund, and stop chasing what we don't have maybe we can get back to taking care of what we have?
