I am sorry property taxes are so high but I doubt building a bring will bring taxes down. I think it is about time for the Borough Assembly to actually start thinking about what is best for those who live here. What has become of our town? I love Ketchikan, I just hate seeing where it is going.
It use to be about making us local people happy, then it became how to make the tourist happy. Look at downtown - how many jewelry stores does one town need? What happened to all the school activities - band, music, arts and crafts, more physical activities like swimming and gym? How did funding get to be so terrible?
I wish someone could answer
my questions. Are there still brave folks who are not afraid
to speak out. I know I am not afraid for I just want what's best
for local citizens.
