To the editor:
It’s time to put some new faces into the Alaska Legislature. We need more people who are thoughtful, deliberative and intelligent and who will weigh the issues on merit and evidence rather than ideology.
We need people who are thinking long-term rather than only about the immediate future. We need people who have solid reputations as decent citizens, who are reliable and hard working. We need people who think creatively to solve problems. We need people who are more like those of us in the socioeconomic middle, instead of in the top elite tier. We need people not aligned with special interests or big business.
I know someone just like that, running for Senate Seat C: Anne Sudkamp. I’ve known Anne for quite a while and worked with her at the University of Alaska Fairbanks. She has all of those qualities and more. She will do an excellent job for all of us in the Legislature. Please vote for Anne Sudkamp, the Frugal Fairbanksan.
