I believe there needs to be an access road out of and to Juneau. I would like to ask your support in achieving this goal.
Currently the issue has been tabled, so to speak, with the Juneau road vote being defeated and funds for the completion of the Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) being dropped, but that was before the tragic events of Sept. 11, 2001.
Since that tragic day, we have seen that one of our greatest strengths is to stand united. And to be united, we need to be as connected as we can wherever possible. We, as a community, as the capital of Alaska, as a good neighbor and as Americans need the connection only a road can provide. A road is basic and reliable. Please support road access for Juneau.
