Vote "YES" to look for a buyer
By Patti Fay Hickox

Voting yes [on Tuesday, April 6th] only means the city can look for a buyer for telecommunications. Ketchikan KPU cannot complete against GCI, AT&T etc. in the telecommunications business. We would need to buy massive equipment to keep up. This would suck out all the money and some day we will have to sell because GCI etc. has a lot more money to build these connections. We cannot keep up with these big outfits.

This does not mean we are selling our utilities. Voting yes means we will look for a buyer for the telecommunications part of the system.

Let's at least look for a buyer.
