Great work, everyone. Thanks for showing up and testifying this evening. Your support made the start to this campaign a successful one.
Special thanks to Kingston’s Common Council, who really were as surprised as all of us regarding the proposed water sale to Niagara Bottling Company. A big thanks to Alex Beauchamp of Food and Water Watch. It’s great to have your support. Wasn’t it fantastic to have the jazz musicians Jack DeJohnette and Larry Grenadier with us this evening? Did you guys catch that?
Thanks to Clark Richters of Kingston News for capturing the entire evening. Video of tonight’s meeting will be available shortly.
Our next steps over the next two weeks are two upcoming meetings where we ask residents to be present to witness. Public comment may or may not occur – but our presence will say plenty. They are:
Kingston Water Board
Kingston Water Department
111 Jansen Avenue
Kingston Conservation Advisory Council
There will no doubt be more to do – and I will be in touch. We’ll get there.
