We live in the last frontier, a state with vast resources but many times a lack of access to those rich resources.  ALL Alaskans should have access to Alaska's resources for mining, fishing or recreational purposes.

I was born in Alaska and have lived my entire life in the Skwentna River Valley. I believe that if the West Susitna Access Road is built and managed properly, it will provide jobs, opportunity and access to many Alaskans.

Calvin Flanigan

We had an airplane for many years so I got to see and do a lot of things in this great land that many people have not. This is why I absolutely support the West Susitna Access Road - so that many more Alaskans can finally experience the most beautiful areas of our state.
