Please pardon a brief digression from the usual subject of these pages. One of the reasons I spend time focused on Alaska oil & gas and fiscal policy issues is because of the importance of those issues to the future of the state.
Also important to the future of the state is the availability and role being played by the state’s four centers of higher education — the University of Alaska Fairbanks, the University of Alaska Anchorage, the University of Alaska Southeast and Alaska Pacific University. UAA — the University of Alaska Anchorage — recently published a story about my support for that institution. If you do not already, I would urge you to support one or more of these institutions as well; they are as crucial to the future of Alaska as is oil and gas.
The story is part of the University’s “I Am/Love UAA” series and is available here.
