Many people who live in Juneau aren't afraid to share their thoughts and opinions. It's not always comfortable to hear or read diverging viewpoints, but it challenges me to explore what I believe and why regarding issues. Our respectful exchanges - be they over fluoride, all-terrain vehicles or the new high school - provide a richer backdrop and more ideas for our decision-makers.

I am voting for Marshal Kendziorek for city Assembly, because he believes in taking the time to listen to our diverse views. With nearly a decade of experience on the city Planning Commission, he's demonstrated his commitment to asking hard questions and struggling with the best answers as he strives to improve the capital city. In my years of work with groups including Perseverance Theatre and the North Douglas Neighborhood Association, he's enthused by a grassroots approach - by dreams, ideas, information and people. When necessary, he challenges an insular process.
If you've seen Marshal in action, you've witnessed how hard he works to research and understand each policy, decision and issue. Whether it's affordable housing or a new community arts center, Marshal ponders the big vision as he studies the minute details. Mostly, he cares about improving Juneau for the folks who live, work and play here.
He's a key to our vibrant future.
