Consider candidates for Senate District N

On the first day of early voting Monday, Oct. 22, I cast my vote for President of the United States and other candidates and issues.

While this is a critical time for our nation, the purpose of this letter is to focus on the state candidate for Senate District N. Senate District N is as diverse as Alaska itself; including the communities of South Anchorage, Seward, Moose Pass, Hope, Cooper Landing, Sterling, Mackey Lake area, and Nikiski.

The two candidates running for the Senate seat are Republican Cathy Giessel and Unaffiliated candidate Ron Devon. I had an opportunity to meet Ron Devon

at Industry Appreciation Day in Kenai this August. I had the opportunity to hear him and his opponent debate in Seward last month. Being Unaffiliated gives Ron the advantage to listen to all voices of this diverse district and when elected will allow him to make decisions that are best for the majority of his district. He is fair, open minded, approachable, and very willing to listen.

Those in the Central Peninsula area will have an opportunity on Oct. 30 at 6 p.m. at the Triumvirate Theatre in the Peninsula Center Mall in Soldotna to hear a debate between Ron Devon and Cathy Giessel sponsored by the Redoubt Reporter and KDLL radio. I encourage voters in this area to attend so they too can vote for the candidate that will best represent them in Juneau.

Please remember to vote.
