Open Letter To Governor Palin regarding the Gravina Access Highway
By Heather Hollowell

Dear Governor Palin:

I am writing to encourage you to do away with the Gravina Access Highway. At about $8 million per mile of public money, this is a fiscal mistake. After your statements regarding the bridge and the presumed difficulty of funding with money that would otherwise go to maintenance and safety improvements here and around the state, the Gravina project simply isn t needed. I urge you to reconsider the contract rushed by the Murkowski administration (in similar fashion to the Juneau pioneer road), and do away with a bad project propped up by taxpayers.
