Ferry to Prince Rupert Needed

By David Alderson


April 26, 2023

I agree with Mr. Johnson and Frank Murkowski in need of the ferry to Prince Rupert. Also, Mary Dahle’s information she shared on the ferry costs.

We in southeast Alaska desperately want a highway. The Alaska Marine Highway is the answer. All communities in South East Alaska need affordable transportation to and from health and shopping centers. Kids need a way to get to their friends and other family members. Sports and music activities in small villages and towns. It’s the little things that matter most for a healthy community.
