As befits an "election year" Fourth of July Parade
there were several floats boosting the candidacy of local and
Southeast hopefuls (Vote Landis! Vote Stedman! Vote Shay! Vote
Allen-Herron! Vote Elkins!)but one familiar name was not among
them and that should also be noted.
Rep. Bill Williams is retiring after serving District One in
the state legislature since 1992. A decade is several lifetimes
in the often bitter world of Alaskan politics and yet Rep. Williams
has managed to maintain his cheerful "twinkle" while
serving this area extremely well, especially during his years
at the head of the resources, transportation and finance committees.
It was odd not to see "The Representative" marching
in this year's Parade, but he's already walked a lot of miles
for this community and I just wanted to say thanks!
