Assembly member files complaint against borough

A Kenai Peninsula Borough Assembly member from Homer has challenged a clause prohibiting him from speaking or writing about the assembly’s controversial invocation policy. In a civil suit, assembly member Willy Dunne, District 9, said a legal nonprofit’s contract to defend the borough in an ongoing lawsuit over the invocation policy violates his constitutional right to free speech.

Dunne filed a civil complaint in Superior Court in Kenai on Thursday, March 9, asking for a temporary injunction against the borough administration and Borough Mayor Mike Navarre. Superior Court Judge Anna Moran holds a hearing on Dunne’s complaint at 9 a.m. Thursday, March 16, at the Kenai Courthouse.
