CITY COUNCIL, "JUST SAY
by Flo Long

I have been reading the Ketchikan daily news regarding the company
wanting to purchase KPU telephone division. It would be an injustice
for the city to take this away from the people of Ketchikan.
I lived in NM for 31 years
before coming to the great state of Alaska. I saw our local
telephone company do the same thing. When our city council told
us it would be better for the people and the city,, they were
wrong. To get service, we had to call Phoenix, AZ. They had
to send someone down 200 miles away. We were charged more and
the service was not so well handled.
But we folks in Ketchikan at
least will have a say, we can vote on the issue. Please city
council, reconsider this matter, for the people that voted
for you. Do not let the same thing happen. The large company
will effect everyone in the community. More jobs will go and
people will be displaced again. Do we want more unemployment
REMEMBER CITY COUNCIL, "JUST
