Pro Knowles

On November 7, my choice is clear.

I know where Tony Knowles stands and I know what he will do for the people of Southeast Alaska. I have been listening pretty carefully to Sarah Palin during the campain and about all I have heard is that she promises to look out for her "base" in the Mat-Su is she gets the big office in Juneau.

After all, she told the folks in Wasilla that she would like to move that big office to the Mat-Su. Oh wait, she said "statewide" that she wasn't in favor of a capital move.

Do you see a problem here?

Ms. Palin is also running on the ever popular "new ideas" - or in this case "new energy" - platform.

I remember that at least twice in the 1980s Alaskans chose folks with "new ideas" to be Governor. And we all remember how well that didn't turn out.

Please vote for Tony Knowles on Nov. 7.
