As a labor leader and lifelong Alaskan, I am very encouraged at the steady direction our governor is taking Alaska as outlined in the State of the State address.
Gov. Frank Murkowski is definitely on target, paving the way for young Alaskans to have a good future here with his dedication to education and work force training. He has shown true leadership with his commitment to building Alaska's infrastructure, constructing a gas pipeline, and reforming the Economic Limit Factor taxation system that gives us the necessary funding to finance these projects.
It is time for everyone to move Alaska forward. Enough with the naysayers.
Our time is now.
