An Open Letter to The Residents of Ward 3, Oneida:


It is my privilege to represent Ward 3 on the City of Oneida Common Council and I would appreciate your continued support & vote on Election Day, November 2nd. During my two terms I have worked on the Ward’s behalf but there is still much more to be done.

There have been several citywide achievemen­ts over the past few years, but the most satisfying are those in which I help residents of Ward 3.

Here are just a few comments “…Thank you, thank you, thank you, Jim. I

should have called you years ago” , a Ward 3 resident asking for removal of a diseased tree on city street.

““I appreciate you looking into this and giving an update so quick.” — resident regarding street paving progress.

“Thank you for looking into this matter for us.” — resident concerned about abandoned houses

Some future priorities I will continue to pursue: bringing back a family focus to Oneida,

Re-imagining the Flats with community-friendly options such as community gardens, a dog park, and recreation­al field(s), Remake downtown with family-friendly businesses and artisan storefront­s. I continue to support local businesses and worthy economic developmen­ts which complement our City.

I continue to promote quality of life projects like the Rail Trail and the Oneida Public Library. In the long term, I will also work to open a New York State Thruway interchang­e in north Oneida.

However, none of this happens by accident or by just one person. Whatever your political stripe, please vote on November 2nd.

Thank you!

Sincerely yours, — Jim Coulthart Ward 3 Councilor, Oneida 315-363-4158
