Pork barrel?
By Jay Jones


June 16, 2005

I was just curious if Mr. Hoff Jr. knew how much of the taxpayer's money has been spent on Alaska's "indigenous people" via federal grants and how he felt about the road to nowhere on Annette Island serving the special interests in Metlakatla. Would he consider that expenditure "pork barrel"?

Don't worry Mr. Hoff, there's plenty of room at the feeding trough for everybody. It doesn't matter which of the two major parties you belong to or what your ethnic background is or even your income level. At least until the money is all gone.
