Open Letter: Outsourcing
by Mike Sallee
September 09, 2004
Dear Governor Murkowski,
I just read of your administrative order to prevent outsourcing
of Citicorps call center functions to Bombay, India. I'm just
wondering if you could create a similar administrative order
that would prevent the outsourcing of the processing of round
Currently, the Alaska Mental Health Trust plans to let contracts
to log its timber lands in the Ketchikan Borough and allow those
logs to be exported in the round on log ships. Those logs can
and should be processed locally, at a rate consistent with the
capacities of small local businesses that are the backbone of
the local economy.
Even the locally operating Pacific Log and Lumber, though
hardly small by SE Alaska standards, will not get a stick
of the Mental Health Trust timber.
