This year's gubernatorial election has been perplexing for me.
On the one hand, I'm extremely happy about the prospects of either Fran or Frank being our next governor, on the expectation that either is going to be big improvement for Juneau over what we've experienced for the past many years. However, as between the two of them, I can't quite decide which is my favorite candidate. Each has strong points I strongly agree with, but each creates some concerns for me over some aspects of their expected public policy. So, I've decided that the money I would normally contribute to my choice of candidate in this race is instead going to go to the United Way. Yup, I'm going to double my normal contribution and make my donation in the name of each candidate and in that way thank and support each of them for their expected good actions for our capital community and our state. I still don't know what I'm going to do when I get to the ballot box, but that's another day.
