letter lauding John MacKinnon for his DUI signs is fine but let's not forget that in the same article , about three years back, in which your oh so wise mayor, in an article discussing the senior sales tax exemption, stated that seniors were just a group cheating death. Mr. MacKinnon stated he knew of people who were using their grandparents' exemption cards to cheat on sales tax but when asked in a subsequent publication to name the individuals no answer was forthcoming. Pin a medal on John for that one. Also the seniors who are still in Juneau and have helped build the city over the years with their dollars and labors want to remember, when election time rolls around, who made the idiotic and uncomplimentary statements and apparently approved of cheating the tax man.
