A pitch for Bill Walker

I was born and raised in Alaska and have lived here my entire life. I once thought that no one loves Alaska more than my family; a family that participates in many of the great activities our state has to offer- skiing, fishing, hunting, hiking, berry picking, etc. ...

Then I met Bill Walker.

I have known Bill and his family for 25 years, and can honestly say that he loves our state more than anyone I know. Bill, a lifelong Alaskan was born in Fairbanks and grew up in Delta Junction as well as Valdez. When Bill was 27 he served as mayor of Valdez and then attended law school. He heads up an Anchorage law firm that focuses on oil and gas issues as well as municipal law.

Bill is not running for governor to advance his political career. He is running as an independent candidate in order to insure that Alaska regains control of its natural resources and its future, without bowing to pressure from party or special interests. Bill will assemble the very best team of Alaskans, chosen for their expertise and dedication to resolve our state’s many important issues without regard to party affiliation.

Some have accused Bill of being a “single issue” candidate; that he is only concerned with getting Alaska a gas line. This could not be further from the truth. Jobs for Alaskans, education, competent fisheries management, tourism, agriculture, the environment and veteran needs are just a handful of the issues that Bill cares deeply about. I ask you to take a moment to learn more about Bill Walker by visiting his website: www.billwalkerforgovernor.com

By doing so, you will learn why Bill Walker is running for governor. The time is now Alaska. It is time to elect Bill Walker as our next governor.
