Borough Assembly Candidate: Mike Sallee
By Jim Eakes

I will vote for Mike Sallee for Borough Assembly because he is a candidate with a genuine interest in retaining the unique character of Ketchikan and Southern Southeast Alaska. As a lifetime Alaskan, he has worked to earn his living from the natural resources of this area in a manner consistent with his philosphy of using but neither abusing nor wasting these resources.

New development will continue to come to Ketchikan; I share Mike's feeling that it should be done without destroying the type of community and lifestyle that lured new residents and enticed lifetime Alaskans to remain.

I urge everyone reading this to vote for "Iron Mike" Sallee for Borough Assembly and to get everyone you know to do the same.
