HALO Community Forum


by Gretchen Parsons

ANCHORAGE- HALO sponsored a community forum for Southeast Assembly and School Board candidates open to the public.

The forum was an opportunity for hopeful candidates to answer questions from Alaskans about several pressing issues on this years ballot.
"One issue is to change the charter to make it gender neutral, Assembly man would be Assembly person.  Their isn't much controversy over the issue but it has to go through the charter and that takes a little bit of time.  The other one is to change the charter so that un-sworn police officers can issue parking tickets," said John Weddleton, President of HALO.
Municipal elections are coming up April 1st.
