No to Consolidation
By Don Hoff Jr.


August 20, 2006

The Republicans went wild in Ketchikan, Alaska with the dock expansion, the proposed bridge to Gravina Island VIA Pennock Island and now Consolidation!

Consolidate the Borough government and City government will come with a high price tag. Why would any Borough residents vote for consolidation for services that they won't or never receive?

It will take the majority vote from the Borough residents and the majority of the City residents to consolidate the two governments. The history of consolidation vote in Ketchikan always failed and never got the majority Borough vote for good reasons out-lined above.

This is another great waste of your local and state tax dollars being wasted by your local politicians from the Borough and City governments. There is an election coming up and vote out the folks that want to run you into the poor house. I am urging the Democratic Party, Independence Party, Green Party, Non-Partisan Party and any Parties downtown to work together to vote out these money hungry greedy leeches Republican incumbents and candidates that will destroy and ruin Alaska. Vote out Republicans and gave back Alaska to the hard working people.

In closing, I wonder who is pulling the strings of the blundering politicians in Ketchikan. It is the same people that want the bridge to nowhere, dock expansion and open up more old growth timber to line their pockets. Take a look at the North end of Gravina Island. The termite people are killing the forests. Vote No on Consolidation. This is my own opinion.
