Money for victims, not roads

Letter to the editor

Posted: Wednesday, September 07, 2005

May I publicly add my fervent plea to that already expressed by Judy Schuler in her letter in Friday's Empire, and of those, I'm confident, being felt by many others. We must all seriously demand that our Alaska congressional delegation take immediate steps to recall and to redistribute the millions of dollars now earmarked for non-essential and highly questionable and controversial new Alaska bridges, which include a Lynn Canal road. All of these political wants are simply not priority public needs, and especially so in the face of a human disaster and national disgrace that is presently ongoing in New Orleans and the Gulf states.
