Bridge to Nowhere
By Peg Travis


February 23, 2008

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.

Explanation - why no bridge? As I recall most surveys in the past have concluded the general Alaskan population does not want and doesn't feel we need a Bridge to Nowhere.

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