Public Forum heard Sewardites last Thursday – The Alaska Public Forum visited Seward Thursday evening, March 31 to get ideas and suggestions from area people on how state government should plan for management of problems now facing the state. The forum was broadcast live over KRXA and, though poorly attended, the public meeting drew considerable comment from the 30 or so people that did come out. The Alaska Public Forum is directed by the Alaska Growth Policy Council, an 11-member group set up by Gov. Hammond in 1975 to include the points of view of citizens in decision making. Through the public forum process the council hopes to broaden citizen involvement.
