Dawn Allen-Herron for State
by Keith Smith and
October 28, 2004
We are writing as former supporters of Jack Shay's primary bid
for the Republican candidacy for State House. We supported Jack
because Ketchikan needs an energetic moderate voice in Juneau.
Jack was our candidate because he is an extraordinary, committed
and generous citizen, with a deep civic pride and an understanding
of everyday Ketchikan issues like jobs and quality of life. When
he talked about jobs it wasn't just about mega-dream projects
and boondoggles that lined the pockets of visiting industries,
but jobs for residents and opportunities for the entrepreneurs
fighting for their families. Jack has always been an advocate
of open government and a great listener of the needs of individual
For the very reasons we supported Jack Shay, we support the candidacy
of Dawn Allen-Herron. She will be a moderate independent voice
for Ketchikan in Juneau. She possesses all of Jack's strong qualities
as a legislator excluding his gift for jokes and puns. She also
has one quality Jack only has at heart, and that is youth. With
her youth and dynamism and intelligence, Ketchikan has an opportunity
to put one of our own in Juneau that the possibility of giving
continuity and energy to transforming the way the State of Alaska
does business, and of achieving the seniority necessary to bring
home real benefits to Ketchikan, our workers and their families.
Please vote for Dawn Allen-Herron for State House.
Ketchikan, AK - USA
