Thanks to Haines residents who joined together to show their support for Democratic gubernatorial candidate Byron Mallott during his visit to Haines on May 31. I’m looking forward to him building a stronger Alaska with his guidance and his vision of bringing all people together, including rural and urban. It’s my belief that when Alaskans speak, Byron Mallott does listen and it’s been far too long since Alaskans have been treated with this respect and dignity that they so deserve. I hope you will join me in the continued support of Byron Mallott for governor in 2014. And I’d like to share a special note of appreciation to the Hotel Halsingland for so graciously hosting the event and providing their renowned hors d’oeuvres.
