Letter: Mayor’s invitations to 'dialogues’ were slanted toward his views

Anchorage Daily NewsNovember 3, 2013 

I attended the first of a series of “dialogues” put on by Mayor Sullivan regarding the municipality’s proposed taxation sources. The program, including the discussion guides and printed questionnaire distributed, was so slanted toward the mayor’s desired outcome that an actual dialogue was discouraged. It was more of a slick presentation designed to produce a certain result. The questions were of a “when did you stop beating your wife” nature. I am curious if anyone else in attendance felt this.
