To the editor: Most of the legislators who actively or passively voted to sustain the vetoes are from the Anchorage area. I guess they don’t care about UAA, so this makes it easy. President Jim Johnsen should close UAA. Return to the days when there was just UA, right here in Fairbanks. There isn’t enough money to sustain all the campuses, so make the tough call and the right call — close UAA and beef up UAF.
Anchorage has a huge economy, and closing UAA will not crush Anchorage as the likely reductions coming to UAF will hurt Fairbanks. Make the right call for the Interior of the state.
