It is now time for our community to unite for the common good and support this port improvement project with a Yes vote on April 11th. I am a business owner and property owner but I am not in the tourism business and do not own any property in the Newtown area. Nevertheless, as a business owner I recognize the importance of a healthy economy in Ketchikan. It is so important that we support the tourism industry as it is vital to a healthy economy in Ketchikan.
I opposed the last dock bond vote and voted No. I opposed it primarily because it was too much money and I felt the expansion was in the wrong location. This time I fully support it because it is only about half as much money and I realize that it will be in the proposed location or nowhere. Nowhere is not an option that we can afford. This project is vital to our economic future and I ask that everyone who wants a bright future for Ketchikan please get out and vote Yes on April 11th.
