Letter: Election backs mayor, Assembly

I take issue with Mr. Moe’s and ADN’s assertion that his performance in the recent election was indicative of a broad disapproval of the mayor and the assembly for the actions on the government employee unions. Looking at the numbers, approximately 22 percent of the voters turned out in that district for the election. It was close to a tie, so let’s say Mr. Moe received half of that vote or 11 percent of all possible voters. That means 89 percent were satisfied by the changes or did not care enough about them to go vote.

Even with all the union money and ADN support, Mr. Moe could not pull it off. Congratulations to Mr. Hall, the mayor and common sense.
