Reader: Experience not always a good thing

Posted: Wednesday, November 01, 2006

Voters should be aware there are two kinds of experience being paraded in front of them during this race to be the next governor. The Knowles camp has stressed the lack of experience from the Palin-Parnell candidates and has turned their efforts to the negative messages on that topic.

I am not so easily led down that path, and I find it odd that after occupying the Governor’s Mansion in Juneau for eight years, Tony cannot campaign on a long list of achievements he should be proud of to claim as his own. Could it be that the experience that Tony is so proud of is measured only in time and not in significant accomplishment?

What I remember of the previous years under Knowles I call bad experience, and I will opt for lack of experience over bad any day.
