Did testimony fall on deaf ears?

I would like to thank the CPH/Soldotna Borough Assembly for the 3 minutes allotted to me to speak of my support for the Kahtnu Ventures project. Although it fell on deaf ears! As I listened to the radio on the way to the assembly meeting Mayor Navarre said that he expected a lot of public comment but it wouldn't make any difference. That sounds like they already made up their minds. So much for our elected officials actually listening to their constituents. I believe that according to the Clarion poll the margin is still about 2 to 1 for the new ambulatory surgery center. It's great to see that these politicians are so in touch with the citizens of the Kenai Peninsula. But what can we do? you ask. Well here is what I will do during the next election. Regardless of your political affiliation or the district you live in if you decide to oppose any member of the Kenai Peninsula Borough assembly, Borough Mayor or the Soldotna City council I will help in any way I can. As soon as your hat has been thrown into the race expect a call from me. I am still on the fence about the Kenai City Council. They did not draft a resolution against Kahtnu Ventures, but they didn't draft one for it.
