Weyhrauch pushed citizenship office

Letter to the editor

Posted: Tuesday, October 26, 2004

For two years I have watched closely the work performance of Bruce Weyhrauch in the state Legislature and it was gratifying to note that despite his very hectic schedule he still found time to listen and resolved with compassion the many concerns of us Filipinos.

I deeply appreciate his very successful and steadfast steerage through the Legislature, obtaining bipartisan support toward the creation of the Office of Citizenship Assistance, which culminated in Gov. Murkowski signing it into law July 26. Such an office, the first of its kind in Alaska and for that matter, the rest of the 49 states, has shown the unconditional support of Alaska toward the resolution of the numerous issues faced by its legal residents and naturalized citizens.

Come Nov. 2, I and my friends would gladly vote for Bruce and send him back to the Legislature to enact laws beneficial to Alaska and its residents.
