Through the military, my dad, Warren Norrgard, brought my family to Ft. Wainwright just days before Alaska became a state. I grew up with Alaska's statehood. I have been an English teacher, real estate broker, and owner of a precast concrete company. Our senators, Ted Stevens and Lisa Murkowski, were very successful in gaining federal funding for Alaska in those areas -- the military, education, and construction. Due to them Alaska has grown to be what it is today.

We need Lisa Murkowski's clout and seniority in our U.S. Senate. She is the ranking Republican of the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee. She is also a member of the Appropriations Committee, Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee, and the Indian Affairs Committee.

Senator Lisa Murkowski's family has been in Alaska over 100 years. Lisa was born in Alaska and also grew up with our statehood. She loves Alaska like I love Alaska. Vote for Alaska and write in Lisa Murkowski.
