Kohring has his allegiances
By Peter Bolling
April 25, 2006
What Representative Kohring omits in his cautionary letter to
Alaskans is that Alaskans are the collective owners of the raw
materials in this state. That is a spark of wisdom for which
we have the founders of our statehood compact to thank. Oil and
natural gas are two of those raw materials. Alaskans own them,
our state government is given the task of managing them, and
private enterprise has the opportunity to develop them.
As a representative, Kohring has his allegiances confused. He
was not elected to look after the interests of the businesses
that choose to take an entrepreneurial risk and develop Alaska's
resources; rather he was elected to look after the collective
interests of the citizens of this state.
I suggest that he get on the right payroll---that of his constituents.
