City of Kingston
Mayor's Message

Dear Friends,

After producing a monthly  e-newsletter in my first few months of office, I realized that so much time was passing between each issue that it was challenging to briefly update readers on our many projects and activities. In an effort to address this, I have changed the format of this e-news from monthly to weekly. What you will find in each newsletter is a brief summary of activities or issues that my administration is working on, as well as useful information that is often difficult to find on our website (we're working on that too!) As we work to upgrade our technology, we hope to include videos on a regular basis as well. 

In addition to this weekly e-news, I will continue to share our news through press releases and announcements, press conferences, community forums, radio interviews and other mediums. 

As always, thank you for your support!
