Parking Meters

I appreciate the positive comments from people who oppose meters on Main St.

I am asking the Mayor & Council to have a Town Hall meeting so they can present their plans and hopefully have audience participation.

If this happens - it is important for as many people as possible to attend and to present their views as to why meters are not a good plan for Beacon. Many years ago there were meters in Main St. and due to mismanagement, damages , and

Upkeep - they were… Continue

Citizens against parking meters in Beacon

Beacon is a walking city one mile long. Why put in ugly meters which would only keep people from coming to Beacon.

Who pays for installation costs and upkeep? Who checks on the

Meters? Who picks up the monies every day and keeps track of credit card and wireless data? The City would have to hire a person and pay salary -health benefits-retirement benefits etc.

Just look at the fiasco in Poughkeepsie.

We have around 200 signatures on petitions at this time. Petitions for… Continue

Petition to rename Donald Trump Park: Pete Seeger Park

Donald Trump is a blowhard xenophobe, some of his statements while running for president are incompatible with core American values.

Pete Seeger's work for the Hudson River is an example that needs to be memorialized.

Never mind the simple fact Trump is still alive.

Naming a state park after a living person is usually forbidden. This of course has been routed around in the case of Donald Trump with ego and money.

Here's the…

The Beacon Board of Ed Soap Opera

The drama in our Board of Ed is becoming a slow motion car crash, and it's rather disgusting, and all of Beacon should know about it.

If you're a parent the focus should be on educating our kids, not pointless useless drama. If you're a taxpayer you should know you're paying for a ridiculous musical chairs act with superintendents that is costing you a lot (eight in 8 years! each a signing bonus, severance, ongoing healthcare, etc.).

The good news is that…
