Republican primary candidate Klein visits Wrangell

Chere Klein is one of three candidates in the Republican primary election to represent Wrangell, Ketchikan and surrounding communities in the Alaska State House of Representatives. Klein is from Ketchikan, and she was in Wrangell Friday to meet voters.

Klein owns businesses in Wrangell and worked for Rep. Peggy Wilson in Juneau.

Klein said she thinks a lot of bills get through the legislature without being thoroughly looked at.

“And I think since with my business background and how important business is to our community, especially small businesses, I mean that’s what provides all of our jobs, I think it’s imperative that we really look hard at the new bills that we’re introducing, and see how those regulations affect not only the big businesses but especially small businesses,” Klein said.

Klein said she has diverse work experience and has spent a lot of time in Wrangell, Metlakatla and other surrounding communities in House District 36.

“Through all those different sectors of the community that I’ve reached, I think I have a pretty broad base of what I understand across all the communities,” Klein said.

Klein is competing against Patti Mackey and Agnes Moran, also from Ketchikan, for the chance to face Independent Dan Ortiz in the November general election. The winner will replace Republican Rep. Peggy Wilson of Wrangell.

The primary election is Aug. 19.
