"My first priority will be to support the expansion of Juneau's job base. Government can create roadblocks or government can encourage new investment in the community. I support all of our key industries. I also support fair and equitable pay/retirement for state employees and a return to a defined benefits system. In the last year we have lost 500 residents. Let's get Juneau on the right track with wise development, the replacement of our aging ferries, a new highway connecting Juneau to the rest of the state, and investment in alternative energy throughout the southeast region."[3]
