Vote M-U-R-K-O-W-S-K-I

My fellow Alaskans,

I am calling on you to fill in the bubble and write in Lisa Murkowski to continue serving us as senator in Washington.

Murkowski has proven to us time and time again that she will do what is best in Alaska. She also recognizes that Alaska is far greater than the cities of Anchorage, Palmer, Wasilla and Fairbanks. How many times have you seen Miller to come talk to you? I believe he has been there once? Does he really care about Southeast Alaska? It is my belief that he does not! I wrote to his campaign over a month ago asking thathe shed light on his plans for Alaska. I expected a canned response, but guess what, NOTHING! On the other hand, I have heard Lisa Murkowski's plans several times.

Joe is more of the party of No. We are in a fiscal crisis, but it took years to bury us here. And I hate to break it to you folks, but it is going to take years to climb out. Yes it is time we stop digging, but Murkowski understands that. Murkowski also understands that we cannot just say no to everything, that we need to be responsible and work together to get out of this mess. Just as it took each and every one of us to get into it. Yes, that means Joe too, taking his farm subsidies.

This country was not founded by democrats or republicans. This country was founded by WE THE PEOPLE working together. We have swung back and forth, from left to right, causing us to dig the hole deeper and deeper. Well my friends, it is time to reelect one woman who has her head screwed on straight. Who knows what it takes to work hard and work together! We need Lisa Murkowski to represent us if we are ever going to move forward, not only as a state but as a nation.

Vote Murkowski in November! I believe in my fellow Alaskans! I know we can show this country that we will do what is best for our great state!
