State must work to build infrastructure

Posted: Sunday, December 27, 2009

I want to commend Gov. Sean Parnell for his insight and forward thinking pertaining to the deferred maintenance of Alaska's state-owned facilities, especially during this critical time of uncertainty about federal participation.

We as taxpayers have invested too much into these buildings and transportation systems to allow them to deteriorate beyond safe usage while waiting for the feds to pick up the tab. As the governor identified, it is time for Alaska to invest state funds beyond matching funds to ensure safe passage of public and commerce. Not only will Alaska's citizens benefit from the use of these facilities, they also will benefit from the employment opportunities provided during the design and construction of these projects. This initiative deserves serious consideration.
