Vote Yes on The Kirkland Hotel
Tomorrow the council will vote on whether to support following through on the renovation for The Kirkland hotel or to let it sit in shambles as it has for over twenty years, it's that simple. There are politicians that are making this a political issue but the real issue is whether or not we want to restore a historical landmark or not.
Alderman Cahill practically admitted on his show that the reason he was voting against this project is because he does not want it completed before election time because it would give Mayor Sottile's campaign a boost. I don't care about Rich Cahill or his campaign, I do however care about making Kingston the best place it can be and restoring it's landmarks.
Let's not lose sight of the fact that an eye sore that has been sitting dormant since before I was born is now turning into the gem of Uptown Kingston. I tilt my hat to Kevin O'Connor and RUPCO for their tireless efforts in restoring the Kirkland hotel.
