To the Editor:
When the Alaska Outdoor Council approaches Sen. Ralph Seekins
to do something, he does it. When I approach Sen. Seekins
to do something, he does not.
an organization like the AOC asks a legislator or senator
to make changes regardless of the issue, the elected representative
of the public may well give it their best shot. Especially
if they too belong to that club or organization. In some ways,
this is reasonable. In other ways it prevents individuals
such as myself, regardless of the issue, from causing changes
or adjustments within the state of Alaska, or from resolving
imbalances and correcting injustices.
interest legislation has passed for relatively small groups
of people or organizations. Sometimes that is needed. But
sometimes that denies other individuals their rights in a
very imbalanced situation.
Alaska there is very little respect for people's peace, quiet
and privacy. Bulldozers and guns seem to always take precedence
over other needs. Legislators who are part deaf care not for
those constituents whose hearing works quite well. And I might
add that I resent Hugh Fate's complete ignoring of me when
I asked him to introduce some legislation, just as I asked
my senator, Ralph Seekins, as well as other "representatives"
as they are called.
only carry out the will of organizations such as the Outdoor
Council. When I sought private counsel, I found out how many
lawyers won't work for me in specific because they all belong
to the same "clubs." Maybe justice is a gun, but
I'd like to see God kick some butt here. Have a nice day.
