Dear Joe, What are you thinking?

by Andrew Halcro

Dear Joe,

Wow. For the third week in a row you start off the week with really bad press. What are you thinking?

Two weeks ago the story broke that you had used government equipment to do some serious politicking. Last week you topped that by saying you wouldn't be answering anymore questions until after Election day about your personal or professional history. And this week you start off the week by having your personal security force handcuff a journalist for asking you questions.

What do we know about Scott?

As mayor of Sitka, Scott McAdams tried to broker a partnership with the University of Dubuque to reopen the historic Sheldon Jackson College, which closed in 2007, $12 million in debt. Over the next year and a half, McAdams met with Dubuque.

Dubuque's president, Jeffrey Bullock, said, "He's (McAdams) a pleasant person, but I found him to be long on promises and very, very reluctant to follow through. I'm not looking for flowery language. I'm looking for the strength to get a deal done. I didn't feel that Scott had the backbone to do that."

Fairbanks welcomes AFN

Join us in the Write-In Express at this year's Alaska Federation of Natives (AFN) convention Oct. 21-23 in Fairbanks. This year's theme will focus on "Village Survival," with a special emphasis on exploring education, movement of peoples, sustainable economies and contributing to the nation's economic recovery.

In a special session held last month, the AFN Board of Directors voted unanimously to ratify a resolution to endorse Lisa Murkowski as candidate for the Office of United States Senator. The resolution to endorse Sen. Murkowski's write-in candidacy, AFN Resolution 10-01, will be the first resolution considered at this year's AFN Convention.
