I’d like to set the record straight in regard to Gov. Sean Parnell’s comments during his visit to Ketchikan a week ago.
Borough Manager Dan Bockhorst, Borough Mayor Dave Kiffer and I met with the governor during that visit. Together, we discussed capital projects and even touched on the lawsuit the borough has filed against the state.
Gov. Parnell told us he had received comments from legislators in regard to their awareness of the suit. He didn’t make or imply any threats in regard to Ketchikan’s capital project requests. In fact, the meeting was very cordial.
