I am running for Borough Assembly, to give a voice to working people, the folks that really pay the bills in this place we all call home. I wish to represent those who feel disenfranchised, and uncomfortable approaching a venue as the assembly with their concerns, or ideas. There is much to learn for everyone in our Borough, and all residents should have a voice, and reasonable answers, well researched, and should be readily available, to all concerned residents of the Borough.

I am asking for your vote to look at all sides of every issue brought to the assembly without a special interest in anything. I wish to bring back the will and intent of the residents of this Borough, without compromise. I will notify any and all parties as to the progress of their concerns when asked.

There are many important issues facing this assembly in the next three years, and I want to be the candidate who tells you, I have this watch, I will let you know what is happening, and where your hard earned dollars are being spent. I am available to talk with anyone who requests, my phone number has always been "in the Book", James and Susan Schenk, I do not carry a cell phone as I believe it takes away from real communication, I do not campaign nor raise money, I believe I can be of real value in this position, I ask for YOUR vote, and ask all of you to please Vote! Thanks to anyone who took the time from Your day to read this message.

Retired International Brotherhood of Electrical workers, Journeyman Wireman,
longtime resident of Ketchikan, Alaska, Father, Grandfather, concerned resident.
