We are fortunate to have a candidate for governor who believes Alaskans are grown up enough to hear the truth and smart enough to understand straight talk about the future of this state.
We're also lucky in that we know our politicians. They're not just slogans or soundbites. They are people we've sat next to on airplanes, or been in meetings with, or have kids who went to school with our kids. I've been in the presence of Fran Ulmer on many occasions. Unlike many people in public office, she is the same person no matter where she's at or who's in the room. She has always been an inspiration to me and I have nothing but the utmost admiration for her.
Fran has my vote because she supports the issues that are important to me, but also because Fran Ulmer is a natural born leader with the intelligence, the courage, and the heart Alaska needs.
