Tongass roundtable loses members from four towns

PETERSBURG-AK The Tongass Futures Roundtable has been meeting again this week, but with fewer members. The state recently announced it was leaving the organization, which was formed five years ago to find some consensus among conservation and logging stakeholders in the Southeast. That’s been a struggle and as Matt Lichtenstein reports, several Southeast community leaders late last week (5/12) said they were quitting too.
