Letters to the Editor

To the Editor:

There are three competent candidates running for Wrangell’s House District 36, the seat vacated by Peggy Wilson.

The one who stands above the others, in my opinion, is Agnes Moran from Ketchikan. Agnes was born and reared in Ketchikan, graduating from Ketchikan High School, and then from the University of Santa Clara with a degree in Electrical Engineering. She is the only candidate who has served in elected office, serving two terms on the Gateway Borough Assembly. She currently serves on the Board of Directors of a local SE bank.

Ms. Moran has a keen interest in the many issues of resource development concerning SE Alaska from the rejuvenation of our timber industry to developing a low cost hydroelectric grid to support the development of Alaskan jobs including mining, tourism, fisheries and aquaculture.

While on the Borough Assembly in Ketchikan, she led the successful effort to fund the school budget to an adequate level without a tax increase.  She knows that to build a more sustainable economy in Southeast we must look to resource development.

Agnes Moran will be an asset to the legislature, benefiting District 36, all of Southeast Alaska and the State.  I urge you to consider her candidacy. She will be back in Wrangell for the Bearfest and looks forward to talking issues with all of us in Wrangell. 

Nancy Murkowski
