Just thought I'd pass this on. Local setnetters have recieved multiple complaints from people who have encountered setnet ban signature gatherers who have bent the truth or flat out lied about what the initiative is while gathering signatures - even going so far as to say it is to conserve the kings and omitting anything about banning setnets even when specifically asked. Coincidentally, my wife had an encounter much like this in Anchorage - the guy said "save the king salmon, sign this petition". When she said no he said "You don't want to save the salmon?" He got an earful of facts and suggestions after that
An inquiry was made with the gov's office, and as it turns out there is no requirement that petitioners tell the truth when attempting to get an initiative on the ballot. What a handy coincidence for the KRSA boys. Oh, sorry I meant the AFCA boys.
Apparently there is an initiative signature drive tomorrow (Nov 25th) from 10-Noon at the Soldotna Public Library. I am posting this because I'm confident it will garner more disgust than support from peninsula residents. Feel free to stop by and fact check these con artists.
