The courage to vote NO!
By Robert D. Warner
April 06, 2006
What ever happened to our "free enterprise" economic
system? Why can't certain businesses in Ketchikan stand on their
own without these donations and grants from taxpayers? Our local
governments seems to have an obsession for funneling public funds
to private special interests in tourism, shipyards, and lumber
mills to name a few. This practice never seems to end.
On rare occasions, when the public has courage and is allowed
to say "NO", the same tired issues will all too often
reappear a few months later. Is it time to halt this practice
of spending our public funds to subsidize private special interests?
April 11th might be a good time to say "NO" again!
