Worst voting record

...vacation. Perhaps this was just business as usual, as Mr. Young has the worst voting record in the entire House of Representatives (21 percent of votes missed)! Voters of Alaska - let's not make the same mistake yet again! Bob Andrews Haines
Road is costly

...winter? Or do residents' needs count? Does this include the cost of building a ferry terminal to serve Haines? And the building and maintenance of a short-hop ferry for the same? Damn the facts. Tourists will love it. Bob Andrews Haines
Doing right wins the best public relations they might be interpreted by the rest of the nation, honestly ask what would help Alaskans and proceed from there. By doing the right thing, his need for PR would evaporate and pave the way for a positive view of Alaska. Bob Andrews Haines
Palin's 15 minutes of fame were a godsend

...Murkowski-lite. My advice: Gov. Palin, you might want to consider building a little public relations in your home state, because that's where you'll be returning to after your next failed attempt for national office. Bob Andrews Haines
Energy solutions, not handouts, are needed

...unique in its ability to meet this crisis head on with meaningful and long-lasting solutions. Distributing free money is not a solution. It only prolongs the inevitable. We need to stop treating symptoms and attack the cause. Bob Andrews Haines
Why experiment with ferries now?

...experiment" to be successful, they need only give southern Southeast the same non-service that was provided to northern Southeast last winter. I'm sure with such low usage, both boats will remain in pristine condition. Bob Andrews Haines
Dilution no solution

...It is bad enough using sal water mixing zones, but to even consider this for lakes, streams and rivers is irreconcilable. In the fishing industry, it is the fish that should be gutted, not the regulations protecting them. Bob Andrews Haines
Support teachers' union during negotiations

...student, legislator, state worker or just a resident who hopes to see our fine state prosper, this is a time for solidarity. Let us support our university staff. As David prevailed over Goliath, may the ACCFT do likewise. Bob Andrews Haines
Be consistent for sake of trust

...ferry system to provide a dangerous and who-knows-how-expensive dead end road that will still rely on a ferry? I appreciate Palin's efforts to reestablish trust and confidence in Alaskan politics. Please be consistent. Bob Andrews Haines
