I would like to correct some assumptions made by Mr. Hoff in the past couple of weeks. The action he refers to regarding Meyers Chuck and Hyder is the Borough's Annexation of additional land.

Consolidation is the joining of the City of Ketchikan and the Ketchikan Gateway Borough into the Municipality of Ketchikan, a new Borough with the same components, just less "government". The Ketchikan Charter Commission, a body elected by the voters of the whole Ketchikan Gateway Borough, have been working toward consolidation for 1 1/2 years, with public meetings and comment.

Thank you. And, don't forget to vote!
