As the local election approaches, an important consideration will be how candidates for the Assembly might contribute to the coming campaign for retaining the Legislature in Juneau.
Randy Wanamaker, a candidate for the area wide assembly seat, would be an excellent advocate for Juneau. I've known and worked with Randy for many years, and I am aware of the occasions in which he facilitated job opportunities for people beyond our community. His efforts will be remembered at a time when we'll need all the support we can get.
I've seen Randy work through difficult public policy issues, and he does so in a way that is inclusive and open minded. We need people like him on the Assembly who can help our community work towards a common goal.
