I have been doing this website for over a year and have done my television show for almost 2 years. In that time I have given out a lot of information to this community, I dare say I have provided a valuable service. However, some will say that this website is nothing more then a political site designed to tout the Democratic line, well maybe their is some truth to that. I believe strongly in what I say and write but maybe sometimes I go too far.
How can I claim I am impartial when I have had Mayor Sottile my person of the week 15 times? He is a good mayor and I have a tremendous amount of respect for him but 15 times......geez! Surly I could of found other local community leaders that deserve recognition. Like Diane Reeder, who runs a great program that provides education and food to families that need it. Or Clark Richters who puts on the Kingston Common Council meeting every week on KPA for people who do not have the transportation to come to meetings themselves. Then their is Terry Myers at the Foxhall Deli that would do anything for anyone, not to mention he is the only deli owner in Ulster County that still knows every single one of his customers, their name, as well as their order.
I unfortunately have also used this website to advance my own political agenda, sometimes even attacking good people simply because we have different views on certain issues. For that I am truly sorry. I can't do anything about the past but I can focus on the future..... This site will still have my usual commentary and cover different local events but will do so in a manner that is fair and balanced.
Thank you to all that take the time out of your day to come here and listen to my opinions and thoughts.
