To the editor: I was born in 1927 in Haycock on the Seward peninsula and have personally known many good Alaska governors — Egan, Hickel and Hammond. The current governor is not one we can trust.
What are the true motives of the oil lobbyist Gov. Parnell and those in the Legislature who want to give away our money to the poor oil corporations?
As a Doyon member, I do not support the Doyon advertising that is being done without approval of the average shareholder.
Alaska oil production is diminishing only because they are keeping it safely locked away for their rainy day account.
Does anyone sincerely believe Alaska is running out of oil? Does anyone sincerely believe we will get anything in return from our politicians’ generosity to the big oil corporations with the income from our oil? Do you remember the promise of inexpensive energy for Alaskans from the building of the pipeline from the North Slope? How did the oil corporations come through on that promise?
Big oil corporations have paid for the best representation money can buy, and it is obvious whom many of our elected officials in Juneau really represent. It is up to us, and only us, to step the insanity of the oil corporations controlling our Legislature. Please join me in supporting “Vote Yes.”
Repeal the giveaway and be sure in the next election not to vote for those who represent oil corporations instead of Alaskans.
