Seward council member apologizes for antisemitic comment

    KENAI, Alaska (AP) — A Seward City Council member has apologized for making an antisemitic comment during a council work session earlier this week.

    The Peninsula Clarion reports that Sharyl Seese says she was “embarrassed” and “very sorry” for her comments. In a statement, Seese says she had a sleepless night "worrying about hurting people.” The comments came near the end of a lengthy work session during which council members and city leaders discussed how to spend $1 million the city is receiving from Norwegian Cruise Line. The meeting ended shortly after the comment was made.
