Hoffay and his Court Jesters Trying to Stop Police Station in Midtown
Everyone agrees that crime is an issue in midtown, both Mayor Gallo and Hayes Clement ran on cleaning up midtown as part of their campaigns. Mayor Gallo in his first six months has delivered! The King's Inn site has been knocked down and it looks great over there, a decade old eye sore is now gone.
Bank of America is willing to donate their building on Broadway and Mayor Gallo and many business leaders and the community support relocating the Kingston police department there. Makes sense, why not have a police presence in an area that really needs it. Seems like a no brainier. Going after quality of life and stepping up a police presence has worked in major cities like Rochester and did wonders in NYC under Mayor Guilani but Hoffay and his jesters once again are against it.
If Hayes Clement had come up with this idea, Hoffay would have already ordered the ribbon and would have been praising his efforts.
We understand your bitter and we understand it's tough to lose an election. We also understand that there is give and take in politics but there is also certain things that you don't play politics with and that is public safety.
I have to ask how far is Hoffay and his jesters willing to go with this and at what cost?
