Ketchikan Town Meeting Monday, Feb. 29th

By Rep. Dan Ortiz


February 25, 2016
Thursday PM

You may have heard that Governor Walker is coming to town on Monday. It is an honor for me to join Governor Walker for this trip that will allow him and members of his administration to learn first-hand about the issues affecting our island. I will co-host a town meeting with Governor Walker on Monday, February 29th at 5pm at the Ted Ferry Civic Center.

This meeting will allow Governor Walker and his team to share information about the 96 million dollars in Ketchikan International Airport access monies and how they will be utilized to provide better access to our airport and other transportation projects in the community.

The Governor will also present their ambitious fiscal plan to the good people of Ketchikan and Saxman and answer questions. I plan to be there to listen and learn from the people and give an update on the progress our Alaska State Legislature is making to address our troubling fiscal challenges.

Please join me on Monday, February 29th, at 5pm at the Ted Ferry Civic Center for this important town meeting.
