Dear Editor,

I like Tony Knowles plans for the University of Alaska. He intends to expand technical and vocational programs to build a skilled Alaska labor force to work on the pipeline and other projects in the state.

The University Scholars program has been a success. His goal is to expand that program so more Alaska students can stay in the state for college. He wants to establish a need-based scholarship program and to partner with high schools to increase college readiness.

I also applaud his support for the Swan Lake intertie project. Right now we use all our available power. Reliable, inexpensive power is essential to attract new business and industry.

I support Tony Knowles for Governor and I hope you will as well.
