A question for Mr. Gregory Vickrey: As you have taken action it the past that could have caused the closure of Pacific log and Lumber, I am concerned about your position on the operation of the mill. (As head of The Tongass Conservation Society you called the Corp's of Engineers and asked them to come down and inspect the Bostwick logging road. At that time you tried, by using facts that apparently were without merit, to get a cease and desist order issued on the road. Had you been successful, it would have caused a delay in logging that would, according to Mr. Seley, have caused closure of the mill. As the Corp's never issued the order to close the road, we will have to assume that the road did in fact meet the proper standards.)
Mr. Vickrey, do you support the operation of the mill? Do you support federal, state, or local timber sales to provide timber for the mill? Because the borough leases the land to Pacific Log and Lumber that it's on, and has worked with Mr. Seley in the past, It's important to me to know that if you are elected to the assembly, whether you will support the mill or not.
