Alaska Marine Highway
By Mike Moyer


January 26, 2008

Our Governor and other South Central politicians are showing their true colors and their appointees at the AMHS are parroting their line. Now they are trying to make Alaskans think THEY are the only ones fiscally responsible. Does that mean that the public is irresponsible because we want a Marine Highway System that will provide inexpensive, efficient, safe, and FREQUENT public transportation between our communities and the lower 48?

While massive freeway projects, Knik Arm super spans, and even more permanent fund rebate checks are being proposed in our legislature, the voice of the Alaskan coast is being ignored or poo-pooed.

Don't wave your fiscal handkerchief at us because the perception here is that the coffers are full and getting fatter and just because we don't live in Anchorage doesn't mean we can't see the pork as it gets put on your spit.
