Navarre puts Peninsula’s interests first

Posted: October 14, 2011 - 9:38am

Election season is still with us. Unfortunately instead of engaging in creative dialogue and offering ideas some individuals want to focus on the negative.

Mike Navarre is being criticized for receiving campaign contributions from across the state — Bethel, Fairbanks, Anchorage, Juneau. Of the almost 200 people who have contributed to Mike’s campaign 70% have come from the Kenai Peninsula — your neighbors in Kenai, Soldotna, Homer, Kasilof, Seward, and Hope. In addition to coming from across the entire state and Kenai Peninsula, Mike’s donors come from very different and diverse backgrounds — commercial fishermen, businessmen, health providers, retailers, teachers.

Mike has served on the board of the Boys & Girls Club for many years, providing a safe place for kids. And for the past twelve plus years Mike and his family have provided food for the Cancer Survivor dinner at the Central Peninsula Relay for Life.

Ask any group, association, club or school group around, when they ask Mike Navarre for help he’s there 100% of the time.

Mike Navarre has spent his entire career working for us, the residents of the Kenai Peninsula. As a public servant Mike has focused on the issues, working to find solutions.

Remember on October 25th to go to the polls and cast your ballot for Mike.

Bob Penny's contribution ?!!?

I'd rather not have Bob Penney influence MY Borough Mayor with his payment, nor do I think that many of the other large donations from Anchorage will promote a more equitable administration. The reason the law requires that these payments be reported and are made public record is that there are legitimate reasons that the public should be concerned about who is paying OUR Borough candidates.

I trust Fred. He voted with the people on Proposition One. Fred agrees with 70%+ of the people and campaigned for the local citizens to keep the grocery tax exemption that we voted for by ballot initiative in 2008. Thank you, Fred!

Our Borough has subverted and ignored the will of the people on many occasions. They continue to do so. I don't want a candidate that believes that they know better than I on what I mean when I vote for an initiative. I want a candidate to RESPECT the vote of the people and who will fight to preserve my right to express my opinion through the initiative process.

My vote will be for Fred Sturman because he can be trusted to REPRESENT, NOT RULE.

I appreciate that I have the right to know the truth, regardless of how negative one's perception of such truth can be toward another's campaign. These are facts that should be reported and should be considered by the electorate.

Fred Sturman has not taken money from Anchorage politicians. I want a Mayor to represent the people of the Kenai Peninsula. I believe that Fred Sturman is the best candidate to do so based on my observation of the facts, and I appreciate the opportunity to know the TRUTH, so that I can make an informed decision.

I will be voting for FRED and I encourage everyone to vote on Oct. 25th. Let's elect a Mayor who's interests are local.
