This blog probably wouldn’t exist if we weren’t all keeping a closer eye on the political scene in Alaska these days. Thanks #1 state blog Mudflats, and all the other talented Alaskan bloggers, for keeping us informed and entertained this winter.
We’re moving into spring now and, if the salmon run is good, the price of oil stays low and the weather cooperates, the villagers will begin to prepare for next winter as they usually do. Ann and Victoria will be pretty busy but they have promised to keep reporting about the seasonal activities in their villages.
We’ve all, by now, realized that there’s a lot more to the problems facing people living in rural Alaska than the train wreck of circumstances they experienced this year. We also know that people in Juneau were warned that this train was barreling down the tracks and nobody did anything to prevent it.
Now is the time to make sure the right people are in Juneau!
We have invited both Democratic gubernatorial candidates to use Anonymous Bloggers as a forum for discussing rural issues with constituents.
I was wondering if you could post this on Anonymous Bloggers or if you can tell me how. It is an interview with KSDP Meet the People. and it occurred on April 16th. I focus on Rural Education, Rural Energy Issues, Economic Development and talk about bycatch. I would greatly appreciate it if this could be shared.
Thanks again for the invite.
