Historic Preservation of Newtown

I have been listed as a member and supporter of Ketchikan for a Positive Economy! I am not a member, and as a member of the Newtown Historic District Neighborhood Association, I have been greatly encouraged by that very group to cease and desist from trying to influence the vote for the expansion of berth 3 in any manner whatsoever. So I do not subscribe to their or anyone's attempt to do so.

They have been instrumental in having the Borough refuse any involvement in the residents of that neighborhood's attempt to become engaged in the process so I am now unengaged.

I am for the Historic Preservation of Newtown.

If my inclusion on this list is the result of having signed a sheet of paper at the kickoff party of their group held at the Bowling Alley, I thought it was an attendance sheet. Better pay closer attention.
