Slew Of Mayors Endorse Murkowski


US Senator Lisa Murkowski today released a slew of endorsements by several Mayors of communities from across Alaska.

This list includes:

  •    Mayor Stanley Mack, Aleutians East Borough
  •    Mayor Karl Anderson, Bristol Bay Borough
  •    Mayor Karl Kassel, Fairbanks North Star Borough
  •    Mayor Mike Navarre, Kenai Peninsula Borough
  •    Mayor Vern Halter, Matanuska-Susitna Borough
  •    Mayor Clement Richards, Northwest Arctic Borough
  •    Mayor Glen Alsworth Sr., Lake and Peninsula Borough
  •    Mayor Shirley Marquardt, City of Unalaska
  •    Mayor Clay Koplin, City of Cordova
  •    Mayor John Eberhart, City of Fairbanks
  •    Mayor Beth Wythe, City of Homer
  •    Mayor Ken Koelsch, City of Juneau
  •    Mayor Lew Williams III, City of Ketchikan
  •    Mayor Henry Mack, City of King Cove
  •    Mayor Audrey Hudson, Village of Metlakatla
  •    Mayor Richard Beneville, City of Nome
  •    Mayor Mark Jensen, Borough of Petersburg
  •    Mayor Bob Harcharek, City of Barrow
  •    Mayor Pete Hallgren, City of Delta Junction
  •    Mayor Bert Cottle, City of Wasilla

Campaign Manager Steve Wackowski said “From Barrow to Wasilla and from Unalaska to Ketchikan, community leaders are standing with Lisa and our movement to create a stronger Alaska for generations to come.”

“Senator Murkowski is bright, positive and energetic. She listens attentively to our concerns and she helps get things done for Fairbanks and our state,” said Fairbanks Mayor John Eberhart.

Mayor of Nome, Richard Beneville, said, “In Congress she has been aggressive and tireless in her efforts for Alaska. As Mayor of Nome, I am particularly interested in her efforts on behalf of the increased activities in the Far North most notably her success in getting a billion dollars for a new Coast Guard icebreaker.”

While the list includes mayors from all corners of the state and from both major political parties, there is one name glaringly absent from the list, the leader of the largest community in Alaska, Mayor Ethan Berkowitz. Sources have told The Midnight Sun that Berkowitz has offered Murkowski his endorsement, but no announcement revealing Berkowitz’ position has yet been made.
