Gravina Project: Open Letter to Governor Palin
By David Beebe

Dear Staff Persons of Governor Palin,

My concerns over the prospect of fiscally negligent road systems hatched by the Murkowski Administration were only partially relieved when Governor Palin terminated the contract for the Juneau pioneer road.

The recent activity associated with the Gravina Access Highway is equally disturbing. I completely agree with the sentiments of Governor Palin that the bridge is far too expensive for the state to be involved with at this point. Unfortunately, we are facing the same consequences as if those statements had no credence.

I respectfully urge the Governor to terminate the contracts that are resulting in premature pre-roading construction activities that are ill-conceived, permitted under duress, and ultimately destructive to the local community.
