Long Term Planning - AMEN!

Ms Mackey, this is right on...for one, I appreciate the efforts
made by those supporting the initiative to bring the issues to
the table. I have been listening carefully to both "sides"
and BOTH want this community to take a long term look at its
economic development and community building needs and opportunities.
It's a pity we have to take citizen action to remind our governments
of the duties they have failed to perform. I guess, if we are
to level blame, it is easy to start by looking to our governments'
management, then to the elected officials who are responsible
to oversee that management. But isn't it the responsibility
of the voters who elect those officials? There is an opportunity
in October to speak out about what our community wants in electing
our representatives. Ketchikan has so much to offer, so much
to capitalize on, so much to be proud of. Let's take the responsibility
to act to assure our future.
