To the Citizens of the Ketchikan
I've been serving on the Borough
Assembly for the last three years - and before running again,
I asked myself whether on not the voters should elect
me again. Here's what I concluded:
I believe that I have done
a good job, and I believe that indeed, I should be re-elected
based on what I've done and what I believe in
- Unwavering support for full
- I'm open and accessible to
anyone who wants to discuss Borough business.
- I hear all sides of the issue
and fairly decide the issue.
- Open government - I consistently
challenge calling executive sessions.
- Good development grows and
sustains our economy - I support it!
- One of two who voted for a
local preference law for Schoenbar contractor.
- Leader in the Ward Cove auction
- I will support the Community's
wishes on consolidation.
- Gravina Bridge - local hire
and purchasing laws must be written.
- The School Board decides educational
issues, not the Assembly.
I believe that the Assembly
should live up to its burden of responsibility, and not
find itself wielding power instead. "Public service"
should be just that - not an opportunity to feed egos or take
advantage of situations.
I thank you from the bottom
of my heart for your votes three years ago, and I look forward
to your continued support!
Vote for David Landis for Assembly!
