Kenai Peninsula Republican Women’s (KPRW) president, Jill Schaefer, stated in a September 13 Peninsula Clarion article that her group has not endorsed a candidate for borough mayor nor contributed to any candidate campaign fund.
However campaign disclosure reports filed with the Alaska Public Offices Commission (APOC) by mayoral candidate and active KPRW member Linda Farnsworth Hutchings tell a different story. Hutchings official February 2, 2017 APOC report shows a contribution from the KPRW group in the amount of $500 on December 15, 2016.
What is the truth? And what does this say about the credibility of the Kenai Peninsula Republican Women group?
According to the same article, the only official political action committee that has donated directly to a mayoral candidate so far is the ENSTAR Employees PAC which donated to candidate Charlie Pierce’s campaign. Personally, I prefer an open, honest, and transparent government. Candidates and elected officials must be held to a higher standard of honesty and integrity. My vote for Borough Mayor 2017 goes to Charlie Pierce.
