Every election is important, and the Municipal Election in Homer on Oct. 2 is almost here. A bumper sticker on my car says “Voting is My Superpower!” I believe this to be true, literally as well as humorously. It’s time to vote and then you too can have this Superpower!
Considering the candidates running for the Borough Assembly, and for any job, experience is extremely important. Willy Dunne served on the assembly from 2015-2018, and the knowledge he gained from those years is huge. He understands the job, has developed the skills to do it very effectively, works efficiently with all citizens, and already has the strategies necessary to represent his district well. District 9 has different needs and priorities than some other districts on the peninsula. (For one thing it is spread out geographically.
Combining experience with his accomplishments serving on the assembly, Willy has worked hard to give us a superb hospital system, excellent emergency services, and he has worked to balance the budget and eliminate deficit spending. He prioritizes education and works to fully fund education.
Willy has excellent communication skills to work with people. He is available, taking the time to explain or answer questions; he listens and always does research to find answers or other options. He is an excellent problem solver, and he is guided by high standards and ethics, fiscal responsibility, and a wide background as a fisherman, a fish biologist, outdoor enthusiast and community member.
Experience, accomplishment, and commitment to our future: vote for Willy Dunne. Use your Superpower…vote!
