Letter: Gara getting a bad rap on education

Posted: February 17, 2014 - 1:02am

I have recently heard some folks in Juneau making false accusations against Les Gara and his fight for education. I wanted to say thank you to Les for the years of tirelessly fighting for education funding. It is rare these days that a state representative will go door to door. From the time I first moved to Anchorage, Les always personally comes to my house to ask how I want him to represent me in Juneau, even when I moved from Government Hill to Fairview. Every year, I say education funding, and every year he says, “I’m on it.” And, he means it. Year after year, I know I can trust him to fight for what’s right for the education of our young people. I want the record to be straight on this issue. There is no one in Juneau I trust more than Les Gara.
