For weeks, Ethan Berkowitz has been running an ad stating that Gov. Sean Parnell has sent $500 million to Trans Canada and Exxon. This is not the whole truth. Trans Canada will receive payments from the State of Alaska but only if and when they reach specific benchmarks. The State of Alaska recently received information regarding not one, but two open seasons, and the Trans Canada line also contains elements for an in-state gas line if there are suppliers and purchasers for the gas. It has been under Gov. Parnell's continued efforts that our state has reached these important milestones. My vote will be going to the people who continue to serve our state -- Gov. Parnell and Mead Treadwell.
