I can take deep breaths again

Congratulations to our newly elected city mayor Ethan Berkowitz. In my heart I kinda knew he couldn’t lose but… as that great man once said, never underestimate the stupidity of the American voting public. So until the votes were counted and I was sure Amy wasn’t going to win, my stomach was in great upheaval. But now I know I don’t have to leave the state. There are enough people here who feel as I do about education and equality and health care to make Alaska the great state it should always be and to make Anchorage the great city it should always be.

So goodby to Mayor Dan Sullivan and his brilliant idea for solving our addiction problems by sending people to a program he read about in Alaska Airlines magazine. Way to do your research. And don’t let the door hit you in the ass on your way out!
