Petersburg artist Tammie Wales has completed a new mural.
It’s on the front wall of The Trading Union, to the right of another mural she painted earlier this summer.
CoastAlaska’s Ed Schoenfeld visited with Wales at the mural site. Here’s part of that interview.

Wales also created a mural for the Parks and Recreation Department, which she donated to help let people know about her art.
Wales is originally from California and moved to Petersburg last year.

Voters Tuesday agreed to remove a financial disclosure requirement for Petersburg elected officials and the vote was not close. In unofficial results, 306 people said yes to the only question on Petersburg’s ballot this year, compared to 93 no votes. That’s a margin of more than three to one. That measure asked to exempt local candidates from filing income information with the Alaska Public Offices Commission. The same question was on the ballot and failed narrowly last year, when turnout was much higher at 39 percent. more
