Vote Donna Frank for KIC

EDITOR, Daily News:

Regarding the Ketchikan Indian Community Tribal Council election, I have known Donna Frank since 1987. I hired her to work on the KIC Welfare Reform program in 1994 when I was director of Social Services.

Donna was an excellent employee. She was trustworthy, flexible, curious, ethical, a good listener, open to feedback and suggestions, eager to try new approaches to solve problems and improve policies and the KIC system, and fun to work with! She was a true team player, a quick study and honest.

Donna also had excellent work habits and got along well with the other staff. She worked er way up quickly and later held executive positions, both at KIC as well as Cape Fox. During her employment in KIC Finance, she oversaw grants and audits, and earned her Bachelor of Arts in business administration with an emphasis in finance. At Cape Fox Corp., she became a Certified Fraud Examiner.

Donna also has an acute understanding of human resources, and years of experience in organizational management and leadership.

Donna is a past KIC Tribal Council and Health Advisory Board member. With Donna’s experience on so many levels at KIC, I am urging my family, and all KIC tribal members, to vote for her. Donna would bring an institutional history and perspective to the Council. Please vote for Donna Frank on Jan. 21!
