We have some great things here, schools and teachers like no other. An arts community to make even Mona Lisa jealous. Fishing so great even a vegetarian could get hooked. Did I mention ballet, swimming, scouting or the First City Players? A town at the edge of prosperity, yet we debate on who should get to be in business and where?
Ketchikan and its people should focus on how to inspire new business, not pass laws restricting it.
Our future growth is dependent on gaining access to Gravina and the Shelter Cove road systems, recruiting new business (year round) to our community. Supporting our local builders so affordable housing is available for our current residents and new friends to come.
Buy local and support the existing businesses, they are your friends and neighbors. If we create the buy local environment more businesses will want to be local. More business = more jobs = a healthy economy = a happy community
