You are invited to join the audience for a live candidate forum Tuesday, September 19, at 6:30 p.m. at Harrigan Centennial Hall and ask a question of the assembly candidates in person. It’s a rare opportunity to see the candidates in action, under pressure, in the building where three of them will be helping chart the course of Sitka’s future.
Sitka’s budget deficit is estimated to be $900,000 this year. And as oil prices drop, Sitka is unlikely to receive much state funding. How will we make due? The Citizens’ Task Force proposes “The Grand Bargain.” Tune in Monday (03-21-16) at 10 a.m. for a half-hour special about their plan.
