I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the individuals and groups that participated in the April 4 We Are One rally in Soldotna. This was an organized nationwide rally to profile and support public workers. Approximately 80 participants rallied at Parker Park and walked along Binkley Street and the Spur Highway displaying signs with positive messages. Those participating included members of the Kenai Peninsula Education Association, Kenai Peninsula Education Support Association, Central Labor Council, Kenai Borough Employees Association, Central Peninsula Hospital, Iron Workers, IBEW, Alaska Democrats and students. Thank you to Mayor Carey for delivering an inspiring speech; and a special thank you to Chilly and Michele Poletti, Cathy Carrow, and Margie Warner for helping make the 50 signs. It's great to live in a community that supports public employees.
LaDawn Druce; President, Kenai Peninsula Education Association
