is my pleasure to write this letter on behalf of Cathy Muñoz, candidate for Juneau's seat in the Alaska Senate. Cathy is a long-term Juneau resident, with deep roots in this community and is a member of a notable family with a long history of public service. She is well established here as a successful downtown business owner, and she is also a nurturing and supportive wife and mother. As a multi-term member of the Juneau Assembly, she provided influential and effective leadership, lending an abundance of energy, compassion and vision in that endeavor. She is blessed with an engaging personality and has repeatedly displayed the integrity, character and ambition that I know will produce the right mix for effective representation of Juneau in the Alaska Senate. As a 35-year resident of Juneau, I have witnessed many elections, local state and national. I am convinced that Cathy is our best choice for effective leadership, and I strongly encourage you to cast your vote for her on Nov. 5!
