Commissioner Mike Barton is a hired gun for Governor Frank Murkowski. Whom was just named, "Poker of the Month" by Citizens against Government Waste (CAGW) for backing construction of the infamous Bridges to Nowhere in U.S. Newswire, Medialink Worldwide - Washington on Jan. 20, 2006. You can read the CAGW news release "CAGW Names Gov. Murkowski Porker of the Month." If I were getting paid what Commissioner Barton is making a year, I would say whatever the Governor wanted me to say to keep my job, wouldn't you?
I read Mr. Barton's letter more than once and I still couldn't understand it. We used to have a saying, "dazzle them with brilliance or dazzle them with bull-stuff".
In closing, Governor Murkowski, we don't want a bridge in Ketchikan, Alaska. This is my own opinion.
