The one thing any Representative representing Elmendorf and Muldoon should be fighting for is our military bases here in Alaska. Your Representative should be working to keep our government from foolishly shutting down our Alaskan military bases. This is not only because of the vital roll these military bases play in the economy of Alaska but because of the vital roll they play in the defense of our country. General Billy Mitchell said it best when he said about Alaska, "I believe that in the future, whoever holds Alaska will hold the world. I think it is the most important strategic place in the world."
-- U.S. General Billy Mitchell to the U.S. Congress in 1935
As your Representative I will fight to protect our military bases.
