This week, I was pleased to welcome to Juneau representatives from the Southeast community of Ketchikan. With around 13,500 residents, Ketchikan is the largest community in Senate District A, which I represent. The delegation made their annual visit to the capital to present the community’s legislative priorities to the administration and legislators. The “Community of Ketchikan” is comprised of three Ketchikan area local governments: the Ketchikan Gateway Borough, the City of Ketchikan, and the City of Saxman. During their visit, I met with City and Borough officials as well as representatives from non-profit organizations and businesses.
The annual Ketchikan visit is widely considered one of the best organized events of the legislative session. I would like to thank the Ketchikan delegation and the entire staff at the Prospector Hotel, where the legislative reception was held. Below is a photo of the delegation meeting with me at the Capitol.
