Palin supports the Knik Arm
Bridge to Nowhere
By Joan Beraldi

Doesn't anyone remember that the Knik Arm Bridge was also the
"Bridge to Nowhere?" The impression I got today while
watching CNN was that Governor Palin forgets that the Knik Arm
Bridge which links Anchorage to Wasilla via Pt. Mckenzie, was
part of the congressional earmarks labeled with the imfamous
saying. The photo on CNN showed Governor Palin holding up a t-shirt
with "Nowhere Alaska 99901" imprinted on it. She definately
wants to distance herself from the Knik Arm Bridge because the
bridge will benefit Wasilla, and she is holding herself out to
be against earmark funding to benefit local constituents.
The Knik Arm bridge to nowhere is still moving forward. I read
in the January 21, 2008 Ketchikan Daily News that Governor Palin's
budget approved $105 Million from federal highway monies, $10
million from the state budget with another $15 million additional
monies from the state for street related work for access to the
What can Southeast Alaska expect from a governor that will not
even live in the state capital which is part of southeast?
