Berry engaged and informed

I served on the Haines City Council with Dave Berry for approximately seven years. During those years I found Dave to be engaged, well informed on issues, and with a keen memory of why many things have come to pass in Haines. In short, a very valuable contributor to the governing of the City of Haines. I urge you to discuss Dave with others who have served alongside him during his roughly 15 years on the city council. I suspect you will find similar opinions.

I expect Dave will contribute no less to the Haines Assembly and thereby recommend Dave for your vote.

Although I support the election of Dave Berry, I also greatly appreciate everyone currently running for a Haines public office (including Dave’s opponent) and appreciate each of their contributions to our community. Irrespective of whom each of us prefers to be elected, all candidates deserve a huge thank-you for our entire community.
