As a member of the Thane Neighborhood Association, I would like to personally and publicly thank Jim Powell for the support and encouragement he has provided to all of Juneau's neighborhood associations in the past several years. His commitment to listening to local residents' concerns and interests and his assistance and support in the development of Juneau's neighborhood association ordinance, which was widely supported by his fellow Assembly members, has served to encourage the public to speak up more readily on neighborhood issues. He has encouraged us to seek a balance on issues and to recognize and respect Juneau's diversity of views.
I look forward to his continuing representation on the Assembly and again, many thanks for all your hard work and commitment, Jim.
