Capital-move costs

Letter to the editor

Posted: Sunday, April 10, 2005

In response to the editorial "Capital location should be decided by all Alaskans," many people would like to see the capital move, but did anybody actually do a cost analysis on how much it would cost to relocate the whole capital infrastructure to a different location? And if that chosen town could even support such a move? And what about Juneau? The unemployment rate would skyrocket, and then what about the surrounding communities that depend on a medium-size city for support services? I think that cost would outweigh the price of airline tickets for the Legislature, and the cost of a new capitol building. I might be wrong though.
