First, who knew so many of you actually read our e-newsletter? Thank you for the response to last week’s poll. You’ve asked that I keep things pretty much the same, and that if the letter is a looooong one, I give you the skinny at the top in case you don’t have time to read all the details and facts. It’s a deal!
And this Saturday you are invited to give testimony to the Legislature on any topic you wish. “Anchorage Caucus” – a fancy term meaning your Anchorage legislators will be in town for you – will be held at the Loussac Library, Assembly Chambers, from 9:30 a.m. – 1 p.m.
This Sunday from Noon till 2:00, Senator Ellis and I will be in Anchorage if you’d like to hear a legislative update, and share your thoughts and concerns. Or you can pretend that’s why you’re coming, bring your kids, and eat free pizza.
We’d be honored if you came for any of the above reasons, and be honored to feed your kids and grandkids.

Dear Friends and Neighbors,
I wanted to give you a quick update on the Seward Highway Project (upgrading the stretch from from Dowling Road to Tudor Road).

This phased multi-year highway widening project will involve construction and construction-related detours throughout the summer seasons of 2012 and 2013.
