No News on KPA?

What is going on with public access tv? It seems that it has fallen off the radar. I have not really paid too much attention with the status of the what is going on, so a plan may be in the works.

From what I understand, the safety issues are legit and the landlord has no interest in fixing them. So the commission needs to find a new spot and move. Talk of the town of Ulster taking over operations has been rumored.

The cable commission should be meeting regularly with Alderman Madsen (cable chair) and Alderman Pollocco (council liaison) to find a solution to fix this. While, it has been nice not to listen to Cahill and Cosme this last month, as a former vice-chair of the Kingston Cable Commission, I know that this station is a benefit to the community.

It's amazing the amount of people that I do not know that come up to me and ask what is going on with the station. People are waiting.......................

The "safety" issues were not legit, Jeremy. You know better than that.

There is commentary on KAPA - plus the new poll results [Taxes (NonProfits/Religious Orgs); Troops; "Common Fire"; Pelosi; H. Clinton; M. Hinchey; More...] have been written up over at http://www.spreadingourwings.blogspot.com.

Thank you to all who participated.

I do have to say I DID enjoy some the the Cahill Programs. The puppets were enjoyable

Fire Chief and fireman get lucrative contract and overtime - they work on Mayor's campaign - they are puppets and selectively enforce City codes - against critics(KPA), against minorities (King's Inn) - Madsen is starting to act more and more puppetlike, not posting comments on his so called blog that are critical to City operations, not responding to questions asked of him on Ward 9 group - I can see him being conveniently unable to schedule liason meetings to pacify Mayor Jim.

There's already too much junk on TV without seeing more on this crazy public access channel.

Sottile has no intention of getting KPA going again even though he says he does.

If he really did you would see it running by now.
