Please vote YES on April 11th for the Port Improvement Bond.
By Lance Moyer


April 07, 2006

I moved to Ketchikan 3 years ago to work in a downtown business that caters to locals as well as tourists and crew members.

Because of the business we do with tourists and crew members, I'm able to stock a wide variety of merchandise at competitive prices for the locals, and stay open 12 months a year. Essentially, tourism subsidizes what we're able to carry year-round.

Since I've been here, my wife and I have bought a home, paid taxes, and have patronized almost every business in Ketchikan, from contractors to restaurants to stores.

I've also lived in Kodiak for 3 years, and I can tell you the economic benefits of the tourism industry in Ketchikan provides a much better standard of living than in most towns in Alaska.

For our economic future and continued quality of life in Ketchikan, please vote YES on the Port Improvement Bond April 11th.
