Jim Powell has done a fine job on the CBJ Assembly, and he'll have my vote next week. Over the past six years he has worked hard for the community and has proven himself as an excellent public servant.
I particularly like his strong track record of support for education, and the lead he's taken in getting the Assembly to work on balancing tourism development and resident's quality of life. I haven't always agreed with his positions, but he is straightforward in explaining them, listens to all sides on issues and respects differing views. He clearly cares about Juneau's future, and about helping solve people's problems in a fair way. I look forward to having him represent me for another three years.
