To the editor:
The words energy, economy and efficiency are being used by Norm Phillips in his campaign posters. These words happen to describe Mayor Hopkins’ performance quite well.
As for Norm’s “man of action” claim, I have to wonder what he plans on loading his briefcase with. If his version of being a man of action is helping hand the oil companies $2 billion per year in state revenue, then his other slogan, “do less with less,” will be prophetic. This will have a devastating effect on our local economy.
Norm is a player in the Make Alaska Competitive Coalition, which supports Gov. Parnell’s (the ex-oil company lobbyist) needless give away to the oil companies.
Fairbanks is fortunate to have as its mayor someone with the work ethic, intelligence and integrity shown by Mayor Hopkins in his personal and public life. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. Vote Luke Hopkins.
