I am happy to see that Fred Sturman has thrown his hat into the ring for Kenai Peninsula Borough Mayor. I’ve known Fred and his family for many years. Fred is a hard worker and as honest as the day is long. The others in this race have already served their time in the public sector — they are part of the reason our children and grandchildren may not be able to afford to live in this part of Alaska. This time around, let’s vote for someone who has been fighting against higher taxes, inefficient government and creeping socialism for a long time ... Fred Sturman.
