City Council Spending
By Tiffany Cook
January 25, 2010
This year the Ketchikan City Council made tough choices about
reducing funding for non-profit organizations. Tough times call
for tough choices, and I think the Council did the best they
could, but the loss of those funds hurt the organizations who
saw their funding reduced.
So, in these tough times, at last Thursday night's City Council
meeting this same council that has had to reduce funding to these
agencies voted to spend $25,000 on a "public education campaign"
for the April 6 special election about selling the KPU telephone
I support the sale of the telephone division, but my mind was
made up long before one dime of that $25,000 will be spent.
Let the voters decide for themselves. Find a better use for
About: "Born and raised
in Ketchikan and now a local businessperson."
