This message is for residents of the
Buckingham Pond/Crestwood NA
and adjacent parts of Slingerlands
bordering Krum Kill and Blessing
It has wider application to other
neighborhoods as well.
The basic idea is that "government
can't save us - we must save ourselves
the government and America".
I spoke with Mayor Jennings on his
Talk 1300 radio program this past
Friday. (AM 1300 9- 10 AM).
I called the Mayor's attention to
3 quality of life issues impacting our
1. The need to save the Academy Station
Post Office across from St Peter's
2. The need to save the Number 4 bus
route and expand service on that
route along Krum Kill and Blessing
Rds to the Price Chopper Plaza in
Slingerlands; and make the PC Plaza
a transfer point for the 19, 13, 18 and
4 bus routes.
This proposal will increase ridership
on the Number 4 route, providing
the large number of seniors resident
along the route to the PC Plaza, and
providing commuters resident along
that route with easy access to the
College of St Rose and other mid and
downtown locations in the City of
3. The need to combat speeding and
reckless driving on main neighborhood
streets, including: New Scotland Ave,
Whitehall Rd, Krum Kill Rd, Bender
Buckingham Dr., South Manning Blvd
South Allen and Western Ave: as well
as local streets including: Friebel,Ormond
Tampa; Berkshire, Euclid and Lenox
Ferndale, Hopewell, Hackett, Collins.
Mayor Jennings was very responsive. He
asked that I get a petition going to save
the post office. The petition is in circulation.
He was not familiar with the Number 4 bus
route issue. If residents along the existing
route which runs Western Ave to Colonial
to Ohav Shalom; and residents along the
proposed expansion of the route to PC Plaza
along the Krum Kill/Blessing Rd corridors
want this route saved and expanded -
organize your petition drive
to the attention of Mayor Jennings and
