Mayor Noble's 2021 State of the City Address

KINGSTON, NY – Mayor Steven T. Noble delivered his annual State of the City Address, titled Recover, Rebuild, Reimagine, at the Common Council meeting on Tuesday, January 5, 2021. 

 “Typically my State of the City speech would include a long list of accomplishments from each City department, touting our successes and planning for the year ahead,” said Mayor Noble. “After the year we had, I didn’t want to recite a checklist of municipal achievements. Instead, I wanted to thank the Kingston community for their perseverance. I wanted to talk about what each person in our community sacrificed. And ask that we reflect on the path to recovery, the road to rebuilding, and together reimagine all that Kingston can be.

Read the full text of the speech; visit the City of Kingston website: https://www.kingston-ny.gov/news/?FeedID=1315 In the next week, Mayor Noble will be releasing a comprehensive 2020 Annual Report, detailing each City department’s 2020 achievements and developments along with goals for 2021.

County Executive Ryan implores residents to social distance, wear masks, and take all necessary steps to help blunt the second wave of COVID-19 

KINGSTON, N.Y. - County Executive Pat Ryan today during his Facebook live briefing stated that Ulster County is seeing the beginnings of a second wave in Ulster County and called upon all residents to take the sudden rise in positive cases seriously. As hospitalization rates and active cases rise to levels not seen since early summer, County Executive Ryan urged residents to adhere to health precautions like social distancing and wearing a mask. 

“It is clear now from looking at the data that we are at the beginning of a second wave of COVID-19,” County Executive Pat Ryan said. “This is a make or break moment for us as a county and a community. We have a chance to remain proactive and blunt a much more significant second wave, but it will require all of us to continue to social distance, wear masks, and take all precautions necessary.” 

Since early October, Ulster County has seen a consistent uptick in cases and hospitalizations. Ulster County’s hospitalization rate is at the highest it has been since early May, and active case rates are at the highest point since mid-June.
