Thanks Mayor Weinstein

Thank you Mayor Weinstein for standing up for our community in light of the half truths and lies repeated over and over again by Govenor Palin and Senator John McCain, referring to the so called "Bridge to Nowhere".

I watched CNN's story on the new Gravina Island Highway, the scuttled hard link plans, and their interview with you. I thought they did a great job reporting the story. It was a sparkling clear day, great aerial footage of Ketchikan, really showing off our wonderful community.

I appreciate that Mayor Weinstein didn't cower away when Govenor Palin, in her acceptance speech for Vice President, reared back and slapped us in the face in front of the Republican National Convention and the nation. Instead he called her on telling the truth.

Hey! We have a new road, go over and enjoy it.
