Bruce Botelho has my vote for mayor not only because of his years of incredible experience at the city and state level, but also because of his ability to build community consensus on potentially divisive issues.
As a city reporter I covered Mayor Bruce Botelho as he navigated Juneau through the rough seas of revising the CBJ mining ordinance, passing a cruise ship tonnage fee and a bond issue to improve the waterfront dock.
He has never wavered from relying on the public process,insisting on citizen input and actually listening to what people have to say...a novel concept for somepublic officials in this day and age.
I trust Bruce Botelho'sleadership and experience to move Juneau forward in a positive direction.
