            The Kodiak City Council voted five-to-one Thursday night to spend nearly 40-thousand dollars giving the city's point of view over a unionization initiative that will be on the October municipal election ballot. The money will be used to pay the public relations firm Bradley Reed and Associates to conduct a public information campaign.

            Councilman Charlie Davidson, who cast the lone vote against the measure, was upset over the campaign expenditure, saying it might unduly sway voters.

 

--          (Union 1                      41 sec              "This is $40,000 ... a biased opinion on this?")

 

            In one of his exchanges with Davidson, Councilman Tom Walters said unionization could cost the city tens of thousands of dollars extra:

 

--          (Union 2                      67 sec              "You ask what the impact ... that's right, private money.")

 

            Councilman Terry Haines explained why he supported the expenditure:

 

--          (Union 3                      58 sec              "The question is whether ... you have to hire someone.")

 

            As of yesterday afternoon, a copy of the contract was not available for public viewing. The municipal election will be held on Tuesday, October 6th, five weeks from today.
