Gas Pipeline - Priority for
By Bill Sheffield
November 04, 2006
As election day nears, I am compelled to write to my many friends
in Ketchikan to remind them what an important, even historic,
election this is for Alaska, especially who we choose as our
Alaska's dream of a natural gas pipeline is about to become reality
and to make sure that Alaska gets the best possible deal - one
that really meets the state's needs - we need an experienced,
qualified leader at the helm of our ship of state. That leader
is Tony Knowles. Make no mistake - the oil and gas industry will
have their toughest, most experienced negotiators at the table
on behalf of their shareholders and Alaska needs to have the
same on behalf of our citizens.
Tony Knowles is the only candidate running for Governor who can
deliver a gas pipeline project in the immediate future. He has
the experience, the respect of those with whom he will be negotiating,
and the knowledge of the critical issues surrounding this complex
issue to get the job done with the best results for Alaskans.
As one who was honored to hold
that office, I urge you to vote for Tony Knowles next Tuesday
to ensure a bright future for all Alaskans.
