If only we were always this lucky.
On Tuesday, Juneau heads to the polls to pick the people it wants for the Juneau Board of Education and Juneau Assembly. This year, unlike many others, features a long slate of qualified, capable candidates.
There’s been a lot of attention paid to elections this year, but that attention has by and large been given to the statewide primary and general election. Tuesday’s election may be more important than either. The candidates are the people down the block, and the decisions they make will affect that block.
