The elitists in our community are at it again. Please don't tell me to see the "big picture" by hand-picking our Assembly candidates for us (Empire, Sept. 22, "Assembly candidate Early pressured to bow out of race"). That's supposed to be our job as citizens of Juneau to take care of on election day, not your job to take care of behind closed doors prior to the election. We can vote for who we want in office all by ourselves, thank you very much.
"Continued leadership?" Hardly. Is this the kind of "democracy" you'd spend a career defending? Please encourage all candidates to stay in the municipal assembly race. A democracy depends on a choice at the polls.
