Republican Women of the Kenai support Charlie Pierce

The Republican Women of the Kenai, affiliate of the Alaska Republican Party, endorse Charlie Pierce for Kenai Peninsula Borough mayor.

Mr. Pierce is a champion for issues that are important to women and the Kenai Peninsula community. His management approach focuses on applying downward pressure on borough expenses rather than resorting to raising taxes or depleting the borough’s fund balance. His proven management style at Enstar reflects that he is sensitive, supportive, and caring of employees while reducing expenditures through attrition, economizing and living within a budget — pocketbook issues that matter to all women.

He sincerely wants our citizens and employees of the borough to prosper and succeed in living a quality lifestyle in comfort. Recognizing that we must pay taxes for services, we appreciate that Mr. Pierce advocates responsible, not reckless taxation.

As a manager at Enstar, Mr. Pierce oversaw multi-million dollar projects that were consistently completed on schedule and under budget. This is the kind of business sense and experience that will benefit all of the Kenai Peninsula Borough.

It is our belief Charlie Pierce best meets the goals of local women with the fiscal responsibility that provides financial security for our families across the Kenai Peninsula Borough, so please get out and vote on October 24th for Charlie Pierce.

Kay Tauriainen, President

Christine Hutchison, Vice President

Juanita Ross, Treasurer
