I'll be voting for proven leadership in the upcoming mayoral election and that's why I'll cast my ballot for Bruce Botelho.
I had the pleasure of working closely with Bruce for many years. I've seen him carefully listen to all sides of issues, find common ground when it was available and stand up for principles when it really mattered.
Time and time again, Botelho's leadership skills paid off for Alaska when he served as our attorney general. He earns respect from differing sides on tough issues and, through that, has demonstrated the ability get things done.
Given the challenges ahead, we need a proven, effective leader in city hall and that's why I'm backing Bruce.
