RE: Ghost town

I have been a part of Ketchikan's city fathers foresight in regards to direction to sustain the community. I saw the end to the fishing and timber industry prior to the 1975 era . State Government, financed the development of the tourism and industry growth. This would not have taken place were it not for people such as John Granger , Bill Moran , Mr. Hanger's own father, and too many others to mention here.

Financing bills, pork barrel spending, and corporate america price gouging are nothing new. Individuals with ideas to help fix the problems are our only hope . Mr. David Hanger has great organization and mobilization skills. I would hope he might be able to use those skills as part of solving Ketchikan's problem's and survival .
Thank You ,
