Following the money

Today I received my borough election mag. Inside there are some very informative biographies and background information on the candidates. What is not included however is where candidates got their money.

The 30 day APOC report for Mike Navarre shows maximum contributions from Bob Penney and three family members. There are also 20-30 contributions from Anchorage residents. There are at least three KRSA board members. We all know Mr. Penney has millions of dollars but Kenai Peninsula residents must remember he has only one vote.

In my mind, now, it will be a five-way race. I cannot speak for others, however as a fisherman, I will not be voting for Mike.
