Where's Sen. Lisa Murkowski's loyalty?

Letter to the editor

Posted: Tuesday, May 25, 2004

I appreciate Senate candidate Tony Knowles' position with the cruise ship industry. He introduced and got passed the first state legislation in the nation that forced the growing cruise ship industry to take responsibility for their air and wastewater emissions. While Tony Knowles is working for the good of Alaska, Lisa Murkowski is giving big tax breaks to the cruise ship industry. These companies barely pay taxes in the first place as they are all headquartered in the Caribbean. Please note: Cruise ship companies contributed large sums of money to Lisa Murkowski's campaign. Sometimes you have to question a candidate's loyalty.
