Keep capitol out of Anchorage

Letter to the Editor

Posted: Friday, July 06, 2007

This letter is written in response to a June 29 editorial of the Anchorage Voice of the Times (Clarion, July 1).

What a sad, sad voice whining about our "cloistered" capital. You're using a special session that should not have been needed to bolster your long-term anti-Juneau bias.

So you want to start moving the Legislature around in a Brother Harris's Traveling Salvation Army Show? And when the musical chairs, excuse me "no frills tables" stop, I'm guessing that you hope it will be in Anchorage. Anchorage is, of course, the home of the vast majority of our time challenged citizen legislators.

Well you can bet that when that happens they won't keep sitting at no-frills tables or meeting in someone's garage. Get real.

I say forget about moving any part of our state government at any time to anywhere closer than at least 50 miles of Anchorage. Let's keep our state government in Alaska!
