Wheeler pushes for cooperation, new projects

As a Juneau Assembly member who often falls on the losing side of 5-4 decisions, Marc Wheeler admits that "sometimes things don't always go the way you want them to." But he has pushed for collaboration and compromise during his first term and will continue to do so if re-elected, he said. "In this community, we may have 30 percent on one side and 30 percent on the other and 40 in the middle. How do you bring the middle more in the picture?" he asked the audience at a Juneau Chamber of Commerce lunch on Friday. "We're trying to do that on tourism. ... Maybe it's possible on the road (out of Juneau)."

District 2 Assembly: Ridgeway would focus on Mendenhall Valley

The Juneau Assembly needs to pay more attention to Mendenhall Valley residents and projects, according to Stan Ridgeway, a candidate for the District 2 seat. "Three years ago we voted to build a new high school in the Valley that has been meeting a lot of opposition from our Assembly," he said. "I think the Assembly has done a good job in a lot of respects improving our community downtown and in Douglas and I think it's time the Valley got a little of that attention."

School Board: Morris also seeks better parent-board relations

When Julie Morris, a 42-year-old mother of five, didn't think the newspaper gave her enough information about what the new high school would look like, she went down to City Hall and gave the plans a once-over. Now that she's heard the school will cost $10 million more than originally planned, she's going to have a look at the budget. "You can't just 'mess up' $10 million - something, somewhere went wrong," Morris said, sitting at her office cubicle at the state Division of Public Assistance, where she works as an assistant to the director. "Things need to be more open, so the public knows what's going on."
