    I’ve been following the discussion and I’ve not heard Walker say he wants to kill anything. No one can make a decision like that until they have all the information in front of them as does the incumbent. I think Bill Walker is referring to duplication and costs of studies. I think this article misrepresents Walkers views.

    Important clarification: back 2010/2011/2012 when those communities expressed support for the referenced small-diameter pipeline, this was the only line Parnell was pushing. Since then it has been shown a small diameter line will not pencil out, to provide affordable gas to Alaska communities. This is why a large volume line is being pursued, together with an LNG component. The same communities and individuals named in the news article, (INCLUDING BILL WALKER) will continue the work for a large volume pipeline project to Cook Inlet. I will quote Bill Walker…”as to the early permitting and engineering work for a project to Cook Inlet, I intend to continue that effort…I will insist the state take control of the project through a Final Investment Decision (FID), the point at which all parties are committed to construction. Such an approach will prevent any one company from halting progress, or from refusing to do further work until the state makes further concessions. In short, I intend to finish the current LNG project plan, but with Alaska working with both the leaseholders and Asian buyers, and in control of a transparent and competitive process.” Bill Walker

    Please, please do not make the mistake of misrepresenting Bill Walker and causing bias against him. These two lifelong Alaskans, Bill Walker and Byron Mallott are running so that all of Alaska will have a voice! They will declare an energy cost crisis immediately upon taking office and laser focus on how to help all of us reduce the cost of heating our homes. Not waiting for years for any type of a gas line, they will go to work NOW on your behalf while they do the tedious work to see a gas line completed. They have their priorities in order and we need that kind of leadership like never before. VOTE FOR ALASKA! VOTE WALKER/MALLOTT!
