Letter: Wes Keller trying to pack court

Another solution to a problem that doesn’t exist, unless of course it’s the fact that state judges in Alaska seem to rule by the state Constitution and not how our current government wishes. 

So Rep. Wes Keller and staff make up a problem and darn if they didn’t do any research to find out that the judicial council works very well; the general public does not seem concerned with the selection process; and the chief justice has had to cast the deciding vote only 15 times out of 1,100 since 1984 so the current one has no issues with “partisan attacks” on his decisions. 

It’s court-packing pure and simple. At least be honest enough to admit what you’re trying to do.
