Ketchikan used as a stepping stone
By Ron Redman Sr.


November 05, 2008

With our governor's view of our town and the needs of our area, as well as the truthfulness of her implied actions after she said "thanks, but no thanks on the bridge to nowhere"; was the money returned to the federal government, or was it used for other avenues of access from the airport to our city of Nowhere, or was the money taken to Somewhere North for projects closer to her home?

I wonder if Sara Palin expected the city of Nowhere, Alaska to support her on the national level, or the people of Bristol Bay that she sold down the river by her backing of the Pebble Mine that seriously threatens the existence of the largest wild salmon run in the world. I hoped that, especially, the people from Nowhere - as well as the rest of the state - do not support her and her running mate on Nov/4/08.

Ketchikan by asking for the bridge, and Sen. Stevens for producing the funds, will look pretty stupid to the rest of the country if WE supported her now. Sara Palin does not care about Ketchikan, she used us as a stepping stone to move on to a bigger and better future for herself.
