Juneau, Alaska (KINY) - Assembly District 2 candidate Robert Shoemake was born and raised in Tennessee, joined the Navy, where he served as a submariner, and got to see the world.
In the end, though he picked to live and work in Juneau where he and his wife are raising two children. He said Juneau is the best place for his family.
He started his business and makes a living fixing appliances and making them work. So he said on Action Line that he's looking to make things work for Juneau as a member of the Assembly.
"As I get into things, I just see a lot of disorganization in a lot of things. It's really hard to imagine with looking at the amount of boards and committees we have. But sometimes it just seems like people don't talk to each other as well as they could."
Shoemake feels it's just a matter of having conversations with people. "As an Assembly candidate, I hopefully can get in there and be a little bit more of a liaison between those folks and just kind of help information traffic and help people talk to each other and just say 'Hey, you know I've got a guy over here that can help you out a little bit better.'"
Interviews with Assembly District 2 candidates wrap up Friday when Christine Woll will be the guest. Lacey Derr and Derek Dzinich were guests earlier in the week.
