Send Frank the bill

Letter to the Editor

Posted: Tuesday, February 20, 2007

The Governor’s office seems to be having a problem with Ex-Gov, Frank Murkowski’s executive jet, of course we all know that big time people need a private jet

We must remember that for the most part no one in the State of Alaska wanted old Frank to buy a jet, especially the legislature, even Homeland Security turned him down, what more can one say, Frank bought his airplane chariot over all these objectors.

Come to think about it, the US Senate wouldn’t even buy Frank his very own jet, we have had a few Governors that got the job done with out asking for a jet, or for that matter commandeering a Alaska Sate Ferry for private outings.

I for one took that as meaning, that this plane was his, so what is the problem, Send our Ex-Governor the $2,500,000 dollar bill, why not, he ordered it, perhaps his minion that aided him in his quest can share the bill.

With so many issues that cost the state heavily, buying an executive jet was a frivolous cost our sate couldn’t afford.
