Vote for Jim Elkins On August
By Larry Buster
August 20, 2006
Jim Elkins has been a private business owner here in Ketchikan
for more years than I can recall. He has proven that he is capable
of budgeting his expenses and manage a positive payroll. These
two abilities are much needed in our State's Legislature, now
more than ever. It would be foolish not to re-elect Mr. Elkins
with his experience and leadership.
Jim stepped up to the plate when the funding for our local North
and South Tongass Volunteer Fire Departments were to be sent
elsewhere. Apparently, fire protection and ambulance services
are not that important to "some of the legislators"
for Ketchikan. Now, thanks to Jim, we have two new fire stations
on the North end and the South end received much need updated
equipment. For those of you, here in Ketchikan, that needed
the help from either of these departments, keep Mr. Elkins in
mind when you vote.
Finally, Jim Elkins has proven his ability to build alliances
with both Democrats and Republicans. This helps keep a working
balance between the two parties so they can get something done.
Keep wisdom and experience in our State House, vote Jim Elkins.
