A call for support of an Alaska pipeline

Posted: Thursday, April 13, 2006

Thank you, Lori Backes, for your opinion piece of March 27, which confirms what many have long suspected: Our humble servants in Juneau have been bought and paid for with campaign contributions.

It should come as no surprise to anyone that Gov. Murkowski and so many of his minions are conveniently in support of transporting Alaska's natural gas via a pipeline through Canada while taking in campaign support from the oil giants involved in the deal. And if anyone needs an example of just how bought a public official can be, please review the performance of state Sen. Ben Stevens on March 24 in the Senate Resources Committee.

It is unfortunate that our legislators are so bent on selling our tax-royalty revenue and precious jobs in exchange for their ability to get themselves re-elected. Please support the cause for an Alaska pipeline online.
