It's interesting to note that while the rest of the State has experienced growth; Southeast Alaska has actually seen a decline in population. Could it be because our local governments have done nothing to make it any easier to stay here?
I'm tired of the mismanagement of our tax dollars and the sidewise methods that used to get their hands on more of our money, (raised assessments, sludge fees, etc.). If I ran a business the way they run the local government, my customers (who have a choice by the way) would have nothing to do with me in no time.
About: "Eight resident of Ketchikan, sixteen year resident of Alaska, and someone who's tired of throwing money into the bottomless pit of the KGB coffers."
