Responding to Senator Stedman's letter requesting an audit of
the project, I don't agree the bridge is a top state priority
- or if it is - it shouldn't be. There are many higher priority
issues. i.e. education, health care, senior's concerns, veteran's
care and maintaining roads and existing bridges.

past have concluded the general Alaskan population does not want

In my opinion this is a bridge to serve a certain population
not the general.
