Strategic positioning and capital move legislation

She has our back

Fellow Juneau citizens, you do not have to be a brain surgeon to understand how important it is to Juneau’s economy to keep the capital of Alaska in Juneau. It is clear that our Juneau legislative delegation is committed to this purpose. However the actions of one speak louder than words. See the Jan. 25 article in the Juneau Empire called, “Capital move fears stoked by bill” story. Some of you may not know that Rep. Cathy Muñoz took on the role of committee chair of the Community and Regional Affairs Committee with the clear intent (as chairwoman) of blocking any legislation that would not be in Juneau’s best interest.

She has our back! Remember that at election time.
