Congressional importance
By Walt Bolling


July 14, 2005

Perhaps Mr. Don Young may have outlived his usefulness as Alaska's representative. He evidently does not realize that his exalted position in congress has come about thru longevity and not necessarily thru merit. The position he enjoys on the national scene should bring humbleness, not loftiness. Has his manners and expressions of self importance lessened his effectiveness in the eyes of fellow representatives on issues really important to Alaskans? Do we need another Robert Byrd representing our State?

For over 50 years the Republican party and its candidates have had my support I sincerely hope I can continue that support but, this representative has tried my patience.
