As the person who answers the phone numerous times a day in the
Kiffer/Glover household, I must disagree with Mr. Stewart's implication
that my husband Dave Kiffer is hard to reach and inaccessible
to his constituents. Dave is in the phone book and has had the
same phone number for two decades with voice mail. His family
has had the same phone number for much longer than that. If Mr.
Stewart had bothered to look at Dave's Sitnews column, now in
its third year, the Borough webpage, or the Historic Ketchikan
webpage, he would see that Dave has not one, but three e-mail
contacts, in addition to several personal e-mail addresses, and
he answers each and every one at the same computer I am typing
People all over the world manage to find Dave through his writing
and he keeps up a lively correspondence with many via the Internet.
A postcard arrived on his desk years ago addressed to "Red
headed radio guy" since our longtime mail carrier knows
where to find Dave incomplete address or not!
What Dave does not have is a cool looking website promoting his
every viewpoint. I am sure Dave would like a cool website too,
but he's too busy working his many jobs, taking his son to soccer
and loading the dishwasher for me to get to that just now. Let's
just say it's not a high priority on our family "to do"
list this week.
I think most everyone who has met my husband or worked with him
would agree that he is easy to talk to, a good listener and sincerely
interested in hearing what people have to say about the issues
of the day. We spent election night with many dear Ketchikan
friends at the Landing and we thank each and every one of you
for your support and, most of all, your participation in our
community. We look forward to answering the phone for the next
