Honor Wheeler's commitment

Letter to the editor

Posted: Friday, September 09, 2005

I found Sunday's front page article "Business Seeks Shift in Assembly" a shameful attack on our Deputy Mayor Marc Wheeler and others who serve on the Juneau Assembly.

I may not always agree with how Mr. Wheeler or the Assembly votes, but to degrade an elected official just to push the interests of Scott Spickler and the Juneau Chamber of Commerce is wrong. Instead of "kicking him on his way out," the Empire should highlight Wheeler's years of commitment to the community, rather than smearing his name to push the agenda of others.
