Whitlock vs. Hoffay
Alderwoman Shirley Whitlock takes on Alderman Hoffay after he gets involved with an issue in Kingston's 4th Ward.
Alderman Tom Hoffay suggested giving away a public building in Midtown Kingston to a non for profit saying, Kingston should get out of the business because it is not being maintained.
First, it's not any of Alderman Hoffay's buisness, he should butt out of an issue that is not in his Ward. Last time I checked Hoffay is still a pretty new Alderman and does not hold any leadership position on the common council.
Hoffay had a fit when than Alderwoamn DiBella (his new bff) got involved in a light v stop sign issue in Uptown Kingston a few years back.
It's not surprising though, whether it's the candidate Hoffay is supporting for Mayor or his strong focus on the Pike Plan. Alderman Hoffay is an elitist and does not care about midtown Kingston or what other people out of his circle think.
The Hodge center offers great programs and is a valuable asset in Midtown to suggest that the city give it away becasue it is not being maintained is short sidded and appauling.
Just like the services that are provided in down town and uptown, why not have the city make an investment in the Hodge Center and make it better?
