To the editor: I am very proud that Alaska’s representatives in Washington — Sen. Mukowski, Sen. Sullivan and Congressman Young — had the courage to do the right thing for Alaska and for the United States and vote for the bipartisan infrastructure bill that passed the Senate months ago and recently passed the House.
They acted like statesmen instead of political hacks, and although I have disagreed with each of them on various issues, I applaud them for doing the right thing here. It took courage.
This is the United States of America. Americans should not worry that an aging bridge will crumble beneath them as they drive to work. American children should not be drinking water contaminated with lead. There is nothing conservative or patriotic about allowing our beloved country to crumble into third world status. Those who voted for this bill should be proud of themselves, and all Alaskans should be very proud of our patriotic Lisa Murkowski, Dan Sullivan and Don Young.
Thank you for doing the right thing for our country and our state.
