I usually stay in the shadows when it comes to politics, but I had to write after seeing what took place last week with certain persons asking a young contender, Mara Early, to bow out of the race for the Assembly so the vote wouldn't be split. I was appalled to think the old guard of this community is worried about a young lady running with the good ol' boys.
I will go out and vote for her come election day. Juneau is a place where one can actually make a difference. It's time for a change and maybe this young lady is the one to start the ball rolling in the right direction again.
