The local NBC affiliate KTUU’s reporter Ashton Goodell followed me around one afternoon. This may be the best news package to date. Ashton and crew did an amazing job. But what I love is the story includes the community and different viewpoints.
I love Ashton’s lead: “It’s hard to say exactly what Mark Horvath does.”
By the way, I agree with many of what Ron Alleva’s views. The homeless services system is broken and has been broken for a long time. The short time I spent with Ron is one of the most memorable of the trip. He is very ‘colorful’ and outspoken. I tried to get him on camera but he said no. I hope to visit again and spend more time with Ron and all the Anchorage community. Three days was very short and many of the appointments I had scheduled I could not keep because of the ride along with the police.
My hope is that my visit will cause continued focus on a very serious problem.
