Standing with us

Letter to the Editor

Posted: Monday, October 21, 2002

I must voice support for my Sen. Kim Elton. He and I have much in common. We graduated from JDHS in 1966, friends then and now; we are both Vietnam veterans; we both play golf (what else is left for aging athletes?); I'm an actor, he's a politician - both on stage, but his the far more difficult job. I get to bow and go home. He has to be available to us all day every day and is.

But, most importantly I am addressing my fellow Native voters. I would like to point out that Kim Elton has a very long record of support for our struggles and today, there he is, still standing with us at our subsistence rallies on the Capitol steps.
