The Political Pendulum

“Thanks, but no thanks…” and other lies

Posted on: September 7, 2008

From the Ketchikan Daily News:

“Asked what issues she’s hearing about from Southeast Alaskans, Palin said many residents here feel they’ve been ignored in some sense.

I guess this is just another elitist media attack.
“I’m hearing from a lot of Southeast residents who believe that maybe they haven’t been given their due respect,” she said. “Part of my agenda is making sure that Southeast is heard. That your projects are important. That we go to bat for Southeast when we’re up against federal influences that aren’t in the best interest of Southeast.”

She cited the widespread negative attention focused on the Gravina Island crossing project.

“We need to come to the defense of Southeast Alaska when proposals are on the table like the bridge and not allow the spinmeisters to turn this project or any other into something that’s so negative,” Palin said.

The Gravina bridge proposal has been a priority of Govs. Frank Murkowski, Tony Knowles and previous governors as well as the Alaska Department of Transportation, said Palin.

“There needs to be a link between Ketchikan and its future and its future opportunities and progress, opening up land in this area,” she said.”
