Rep. Tuck to Impostors: This Needs to Stop
JUNEAU – Today, officials from the Alaska Department of Transportation notified Rep. Chris Tuck (D-Anchorage) that someone posing as him has been calling residents of his district and giving them false information that a pending road construction project in their area has been cancelled.
According to an email from Highway Design Project Manager Jim Amundsen, “The reports came from a couple of different property owners that were very upset since our ROW section has already been in contact with them and DOT&PF is in the early stages of acquiring their property for the project. “
“I work hard to make sure my constituents are well-informed about projects in their area,” said Rep. Tuck. “Deliberate misinformation like this undermines the public process and can have serious consequences for the residents who depend on accurate information. Whoever is doing this needs to stop right now.”
The status of the Seward Highway – 92nd Avenue Connector Project, the project in question, has not changed. Anyone desiring accurate information should contact Jim Amundsen at (907) 269-0595.
