I've known Bob Merchant for years. Well, ever since I was born. He is my father and this election year I'm asking for your support in sending him to Juneau as your next senator. Many people do not know who he is or what he has done. Today I'm going to tell you.
He's an honest man who knows the value of teamwork. It is apparent in his accomplishments. As a union laborer he helped build Kenai Central High School and the Trans-Alaska Pipeline. He understands the value and wealth this great state has to offer. In the 1950s when he first came up to Alaska as a little boy, he realized his future belonged to this state.
It pains him when he sees the youth of the area leave because of a lack of opportunity. He knows the state can do more. He is running to make sure we capitalize on recent gains. The last thing he wants is for us to flounder. My father will listen to you. Tell him by casting your vote for Bob Merchant on Nov. 2.
