I was born in Juneau and have lived here my entire life. Juneau is a great place to live and has been good to me and I don't plan to leave anytime soon. I have enjoyed the opportunities I have had and, like most, want to give something back to the community. There are many ways to do this and one is to be involved in government. I have always lacked the courage to be in the political arena myself, but it is refreshing to have someone like Dick Knapp step up to the plate. Here is a very qualified person who wants to give something back to Juneau. Considering our population and the limited opportunities to be in elected government, it bothers me to see someone running for office again who has already had two opportunities to serve. This certainly denies other qualified people to be involved in the political process. I urge you to give Dick Knapp the chance to give something back to this community. We need a new, fresh face at city hall.
