Vote Yes on Prop 1

By Robert K. Rice

Wednesday PM

In response to “Tracking the outside money by Larry Barsukoff. The facts on the money raised are as follows: Supporting Prop 1 $475,000; Opposing Prop 1 $8,670,000. Follow the money.

Over 20 times as much money spent to oppose this ballot measure. The money contributed to oppose Prop 1 is largely from oil companies Conoco Phillips and BP and the Canadian mining companies. Whose interest do you suppose that they are representing?

Slick high priced ads opposing Prop 1 are funded by outside interests. Protect Alaska vote YES on Prop 1.
