Knowles picks were fishy

Posted: Wednesday, November 01, 2006

Tony Knowles must have taken a lesson from Frank Murkowski when it comes to campaign promises. Knowles promises to appoint people to the Board of Fish who are balanced and will manage biologically. He doesn’t want any lightning rods. Yet his record shows that he only appoints lightning rods or wimpy yes-men.

During his administration, the Board of Fish constantly voted 7-0, 7-0 on everything. I began calling it the 7-0 board led by the lightning rod Dan Coffee, whose purpose was to reallocate fish away from commercial fishermen. Other appointees were chosen because they wouldn’t oppose this reallocation.

Knowles said he is proud of his past appointments, which to me means more lightning rod appointments and no biological management.

No thank you, Tony. Vote Palin!
