Greetings from the Governor


By H.B. Bardarson

Governor Bill Walker is serving Alaska at a time when our economy’s typical economic cash flow has been slashed in half, causing him and his cabinet to have to make some hard decisions about Alaska’s budget, but even so, as Bill Walker would say, “We are Alaskans!”  Even though he’s had to make some tough choices in his short time in office, life is still sweet for a man who has been married to his wife, Donna, for 38 years, where they share 4 children and 4 grandchildren together.  Being Governor means spending a lot of time traveling across the great distances within Alaska, while residing in Juneau and also in Anchorage.  This past Friday, after traveling across the state in a matter of days, Governor Bill Walker visited Seward to make a public appearance at the Seward Community Library and to also support one of his granddaughters, who raced the Lost Lake Trail Run the following day.
