John is for pragmatically developing and upgrading Alaska's infrastructure that will ensure your children and grandchildren will be able to work and live in the state of Alaska, and he is for regulated development of Alaska's resources that will benefit all of Alaskans. These are but a few of the attributes beneficial to Alaska that John Binkley professes; plus, he is plainly a nice guy.
