The first unsuccessful attempt to stop the land swap (approved
by the majority of the borough assembly) was to try and find
someone who would pay over $1,000,000 for the Ward Cove property.
Next a Veto is tried, but apparently is illegal. The final ploy
is successful, though probably illegal. Exclude a voting member
of the borough assembly and finally achieve the result desired
by the minority.
Talk about slimy-self serving
tactics. A chance for a small piece of our downtown returned
to the people of Ketchikan, an opportunity to put 56 acres of
taxable property under the management of a successful local entreprenuer
vs. another jewelry store or whatever Tipton, Sarber, Lybrand
and Salazar envision, leaves me confused. What do you 4 people
If a recall is in order, I
will volunteer to help.
