Reasons To Vote For Bert Stedman
by Jos Govaars


October 21, 2004

Southeast Alaska, in the next few weeks we are going to be inundated with advertising regarding the upcoming election on November 2nd. One race in particular that I think is important to keep informed about is the State Senate District "A".

In the past few years I have spent countless hours in Juneau observing and working in the legislature. I have seen the "typical" politicians come and go and I feel I have a good understanding of what motivates these individuals. Personally I feel in the next election we must support leaders with experience, and the integrity to stand up for what they think is right.

I want a Senator who is a typical Southeast Alaskan, a Senator who is a Fisherman, a Construction Worker, and a Small Business Man. Not a person who is driven by political pandering, and who wants to befriend radical environmentalists and shares the ballot with the likes of John Kerry, Tony Knowles, and Kim Elton.

I want a Senator who knows how our Southeast economy works and will tirelessly work on new ways to improve our standard of living.

For these reasons (and many more), I will be voting to keep Senator Bert Stedman in Juneau. I want to support Southeast Alaska, so I am backing Bert.

Join me and thousands of other Southeast Alaskans and Vote for Bert Stedman on November 2nd.
