2. Economic stability and recovery: The Haines economy is reeling from high unemployment, travel restrictions and the Border closure, low fish numbers and prices, the high cost of living, and more.

3. Covid-19 Management: How would you like to see the ongoing Covid-19 response be managed by the Borough? Do you support any additional local mandates? How would you propose using the remaining CARES Act funds?

4. Energy & Infrastructure: Our community’s public deep-water dock, the Lutak Dock, has been deemed “at the end of its 60-year service life” by PND engineers and it has already experienced localized failures that are compromising its safety and function. If the Borough does not receive the BUILD grant is has applied for, what will you do to help find funding for the Lutak Dock rehabilitation project? What other infrastructure projects would you like to pursue?
