I have known and worked with Dick Knapp throughout his career in Alaska. He is an outstanding leader, who combines intelligence, humor and basic fairness to get results.
Dick Knapp's resume includes a broad range of experience in both the public and private sectors. One of the most capable, hard working and ethical individuals that I have known, Dick will listen to all sides, be accessible and think outside the box. He leads by example. He will be proactive trying to anticipate and pursue needed action, versus waiting to react to problems or study issues to death.
Juneau's next mayor must have comfortable access to the state administration and key majority legislators. Based on my 25 years working in and around state government, I can assure my fellow residents that Dick Knapp will have that access. He is well-known and respected by state leaders. Dick will be listened to when it counts.
Juneau needs a decisive and experienced leader to serve as mayor. Dick Knapp is the best choice and is getting my vote.
