Ketchikan Bridge Project: Open Letter to the Governor
By Robert Warner

Dear Governor Palin:

An editorial in the Anchorage Daily News recommends that you cancel the $40 million contract work on the Ketchikan bridge project. This was one of those stupid last minute decisions made by the former governor a few days or hours before he left office.

I agree with the Anchorage newspaper's recommendation. Please stop all spending on this silly project before more public funds are wasted on this foolishness. I also believe that a decision to halt this spending will assist Ketchikan in improving its image that was so badly tarnished when the "Bridge to Nowhere" made national headlines last year.

Many thanks for considering my opinion!
