I am writing to thank the Homer Foundation and the Tin Roof Fund for awarding me the Beluga Tale Fiction Writing Scholarship in 2015. The scholarship will help me attend my second year at Swarthmore College. I greatly appreciate that my community supports its youth, and their endeavors in education and the arts.
I was raised strict Republican to think for myself.
I have watched Paul Seaton work diligently with diverse town and state organizations election year or not.. both locally and in the legislature. He is a powerful thinking voice for our community.
If the shoe fits, why change it.

It is not often that I write a letter to the editor, but this is a time I feel compelled to voice strong support for representative Paul Seaton in District 31. He has the courage to actually lead in order to move things forward. He not only represents his district exceedingly well, but Representative Seaton works towards the consideration and benefit of the working people all across the state of Alaska.
I am supporting Representative Paul Seaton for re-election. Alaska is currently pumping $9-10 billion worth of oil per year with zero net benefit to the general fund. We have fields where the State has paid a hefty percentage of development costs that will not yield production taxes until the price exceeds $80. In Cook Inlet we are paying tax credits that make no economic sense what-so -ever and never will. Paul Seaton has worked tirelessly to bring some kind of sanity to our oil tax structure. He has 14 years of seniority and is a committee chair.
Speeches! Meaningless words put together to make someone believe what is being said by someone who does not believe what they said. In other words, what you want to believe. But the speaker does not.
One is a polished politician of many years who knows how to use words in a positive way to make you believe, but the speaker does not. The other is a person who is not politically correct, such as his opponent is, so tells it like it is. Or believes it to be.
