Recent letters to the editor have expressed some strong opinions about tough issues facing Juneau. Sometimes those letters miss the mark.

Sound off on the important issues at

The Southeast Alaska Conservation Council just wants others in our community to understand that we consider Sealaska, a company composed of Southeast Alaska's First Peoples, an important and respected leader in our region, as well as our neighbor.

We have a long history of a good working relationship with Sealaska. Many times, our views on resources issues are in agreement; sometimes they are not. Even when we disagree or our interests differ, both SEACC and Sealaska continue working together in a practical, problem-solving way.

We do so because we both share a commitment to Southeast Alaska and the people who call it home. We believe this type of relationship sets a good example for how neighbors can, and should, handle any differences that may arise.

Russell Heath

Executive director, SEACC
