After Assemblyman Charlie Pierce sounded off at the mayor's expense in a Clarion article last week, Mayor Dave Carey plans to clear things up on local radio Thursday morning.
"I'm going to deal with print media and some of the past issues," Carey said at Tuesday night's Kenai Peninsula Borough Assembly meeting. "It might be of interest to certain elected officials."
In the June 17 article, Pierce called the mayor's leadership "almost comical" and said he's lost his confidence in the mayor.
"My level of confidence in his ability to make day-to-day business decisions has changed," Pierce said. "We need some intelligence over there, and I think we are challenged for that right now."
At the end of Tuesday night's meeting, Pierce was the first assembly member to thank Duane Bannock, the mayor's acting chief of staff, for his service. Bannock will step down from his acting chief of staff duties on July 1.
"I want to thank you for your candid opinions and your professionalism, and I wish you the best," Pierce said.
