Anchorage is not neutral
Twenty years of fish board meetings in Anchorage is not neutral to me or many of my fishing friends. This not only illustrates the arrogance of the board but also a decades-long pattern of bias and the erosion of a public process. The letters sent to the board of fish by board members of the local sportfish organization back 2002 that called Soldotna too dangerous for a board started all this. These letters should be made public. The 1999 BOF meeting in Soldotna was contentious. Dan Coffey made plans on his laptop. Remember that there were no arrests, no ER visits, however there were some loud voices, not unusual for a fish board meeting. Where is governor walker’s promise of a board meeting on the Kenai Peninsula? DOA I guess. That I beg the question, what is neutral about Anchorage?
