Vote for Rob Sanderson Jr. - Where experience counts!!
By Kevin Kristovich


December 26, 2005

I am asking the voting membership of the Ketchikan Indian Community to support Rob Sanderson by re-electing him for another term on the tribal council . Rob has been a KIC tribal council member 4 years. He is a advocate for the people keeping on top of the issues that affect the membership of KIC. He is on the most important committees for KIC such as, subsistence/culture,housing, education,enrollment, and other committees as assigned.Rob is also a delegate for the Ketchikan chapter of Tlingit & Haida tribes. He was past president and chairman. With his experience, you can't go wrong when you vote for him. Rob is always involved in community events whenever something in the native community is happening. Rob has no hidden agenda and is always willing to get involved when he is needed or asked to do so. Rob has tirelessly worked hard opposing the pesticide spraying on Long Island which is a former Haida village. He also opposes the logging on Gravina which will affect subsistence activities in the Bostwick inlet area. He also worked on holding meetings for the membership for the proposed mining activities on Duke Island. If Rob is re-elected, He will continue to work even harder for the tribal membership.

Please show your support when you go to the polls and vote on January 16th,2006.

Thank You.
