To the editor:

This election offers a clear choice. Gov. Parnell wants to orchestrate a massive and unnecessary transfer of wealth from Alaska’s people to the multinational oil companies and their shareholders. This is a classic case of ideology driving bad policy.

Say goodbye to state revenue sharing with local governments and hello to immediate deficit spending and reduction of basic services. This abomination has consequences for all of us. It is not a partisan issue; it’s an Alaska issue.

I am deeply appreciative of the efforts of the Republican and Democratic legislators who have so far prevented the giveaway. Joe Paskvan, Joe Thomas, Click Bishop, David Guttenberg and others deserve our support.

It is true that most Interior Republicans will support Parnell even though he has provided zero evidence to convince us. I would not vote for any candidate of any political party if they agree with Parnell on this issue. It’s that important.
