Consolidation Ballot Due By
By Cheryl Henley
November 07, 2006
I received my official absentee ballot Monday in the mail. I
find this "Official Absentee Ballot" very confusing.
I am willing to bet that many residents who receive this mail
will toss it in the trash since they are not absent to vote;
they aren't going to be absent; and may feel it doesn't apply
to them. Whoever dreamed up this mail- in ballot with the envelope
title " Official Absentee Ballot", in my opinion, must
have an agenda going; and is Pro- Consolidation of the Borough
and City as one government for home-rule Municipality of Ketchikan.
How many times has this been put to a vote, and voted down? Is
this confusing to anyone else? Mail-in ballots are very costly.
Who decided that the vote shall be by mail-in?
I am not in favor of consolidation,
my taxes are high enough and so are my children's taxes. I ,again,
will vote "No", and hope other people aren't confused,
or have a problem voting this "Official Absentee Ballot."
Please do not throw this ballot in the trash, vote it!
