Brenda Josephson is working for Haines Borough Meeting. This time she’s promoting native agriculture.
As a earlier Meeting-particular person, she had An alternative to assist native agriculture and meals safety. She did neither. Truly, she made the movement to reallocate Almost all of the $100,000 CARES Act grant funds devoted to meals safety, pretty than converse about a proposal I launched the Haines Borough for a plan to create yr-spherical group meals storage; it was dismissed with no dialogue or Adjust to up.
Brenda said, “Not solely might we develop an agricultural group To fulfill extra of our wants regionally, it Could be one factor regionally that we Could be efficient at.” Brenda voted To reduce funding for HEDC. I am questioning if she is even conscious that HEDC is presently working with the Alaska Food Coverage Council to create A ten-yr method for Alaska. As Definitely one of many 4 native leaders representing the Greater Lynn Canal, I can attest that this work Is important, undervalued, understaffed and underfunded.
I watched Brenda’s sly maneuverings. The place was her assist when she had The power To behave? Many might not maintain in thoughts, however I am going to Always maintain in thoughts. To my information, she has by no means been involved in native dialogues, strategic planning, work events or fundraising efforts associated to meals safety or native agriculture. It is unfortunate that the Haines Borough by no means took a management position On this dialogue.
Try A particular advertising campaign angle. Or mightbe simply do the work. We Have already acquired the ideas.
