Governor - Vice President
By Frances C. Natkong

After watching the GOP Convention and Gov. Sarah Palin last night my conviction to vote for Obama held fast. I don't agree with anyone, much less the Gov. who says Ketchikan's Gravina Bridge would have been a "Bridge to Nowhere!"

I don't live in Ketchikan but have traveled from Ketchikan to the Ketchikan International Airport and a bridge would be nice. There is a lot of business in and out of the airport, I consider it the Gateway to Ketchikan, which is a better "handle" than the Bridge to Nowhere. Ketchikan is in my opinion definately not a Nowhere city.

Also, Gov. Palin took money slated for education away from rural communities and that is another reason I won't vote for her, I am pro-education for all children. I did not vote for her for Gov. and will not vote for her for Vice President of the USA.

She did talk a good talk but when it came to walking the walk what happened? Hmmmm. Thank you for letting me express my opinion.
