"Let's Work Together for Southeast Alaska"
February 06, 2004
Sen. Stedman echoed Rep. Wilson's sentiments. "I'm really looking forward to participating in this process. We all are dealing with common issues effecting Southeast Alaska. I've already attended two caucus meetings and can see they are going to be very valuable."
Fishery issues, including marketing, transportation issues, including roads and ferries, the electrical intertie and solid waste disposal are just some of the issues of particular concern to the Southeast Caucus. Many Caucus members will be sponsoring or co-sponsoring bills and resolutions based on ideas that have come forth from the Salmon Task Force.
Members of the Caucus include Sen. Bert Stedman (R-Sitka), Sen. Kim Elton (D-Juneau), Sen. Georgianna Lincoln (D-Rampart), Rep. Bill Williams (R-Saxman), Rep. Peggy Wilson (R-Wrangell), Rep. Beth Kerttula (D-Juneau), Rep. Bruce Weyhrauch (R-Juneau), Rep. Albert Kookesh (D-Angoon).
The Southeast Caucus meetings are open and are scheduled for every other Tuesday at 5:00 p.m. The next one will be Tuesday, February 17th, in House Health, Education and Social Services Committee room #106 in the State Capitol Building.
