Thank you Governor Sarah Palin
Some of us have been waiting for 30 years of opinions and arguing
for someone to finally but a stop the construction of the Boon-doggle
Bridge to Nowhere , at a cost $398 million dollar plus bridge
project that the Local, State and Federal tax payers can t afford
in Ketchikan, Alaska. Gunalcheesh ho-ho (thank you very much-
Tlingit) Governor Sarah Palin (R-Alaska). Finally, Alaska has
a Governor that has backbone and common sense to stand up to
miss-lead and misguided leadership and private enterprise in
Ketchikan and Washington Delegation in D.C.
I am always astounded how private enterprise wants the taxpayers
to pay for their roads, bridges and infrastructures for their
properties on Gravina Island via Pennock Island for example.
Ketchikan local governments should be concerned about higher
priorities; their drinking water, library/museum, secondary road/bridge
maintenance, land fill and tourism.
In closing, I want to say thank you to those brave people in
Ketchikan that stood up and spoke out against the proposed bridge
project. On behalf of my family, the Gaanax adi Clan, Drifting
to Shore House/Raven House of the Taan ta Kwaan (Sea lion People).
We say, Gunalcheesh ho-ho for stopping any further desecration
of our tribal members/ancestors that are buried on Pennock Island
. Thank you again Governor Palin.
