Any chance you want to tell us what Bob's doing out in Girdwood tonight, barbecuing with ConocoPhillips?
At least, his trailer is...
There's a few commercial trucks and an ArcticCom telecommunications van.

I feel disappointed. My expectation was that he would be inclusive. Guess not.

Ah, politics.

Can't wait to file ethics complaints against him. Rack up his expenses. Tit for tat, just wait.

11:53 anon: wooo. I'm sure Bob Poe is quaking in his boots. Maybe he actually understands what "ethics" are, unlike Sarah Grifter Palin.

Philip Munger said...

I've got a hunch Bob Poe has considerably more ethical understanding than most of our legislators, let alone Sarah Palin.

Poe Rosenfeld, French and Berkowitz - four decent, honorable men.

I think Pete Kott could probably beat Bob Poe. And French doesn't stand a chance either.

Who is Rosenfeld?

Berky is the only one with a chance.

I'm not going to argue about their decency and honorableness, they probably are.

At least they are men...that will get them the creepy left's vote. But there aren't enough of them in Alaska.

Berkowitz lost my confidence in his lackluster run against Don Young. He should've trounced the "Congressman for all Alaskans who voted for him". Ethan turhed out to be as milquetoast-y as Sean Parnell. Let's get some new blood in these races. Yawn....

Kertulla would stir things up.

It would be fun to watch.

At least it would be worth a grin. It's going to worth a grin anyway. But maybe not much more.

My money's on Halcro to win.

You must BE Halcro. He's the only one who would put money there.

Bob Poe was in Girdwood volunteering his time to support Challenge Alaska--a non-profit dedicated to assisting developmentally disabled children and adults participate in sports activities.

He also serves as one of the founding memebers ofthe Urban League board and was a founder of the Village Management Institute assisting rural Alaska leaders develop their community management skills for many years.

And, as a gift with purchase, he is married to an Inupiaq owman and works closely with the ANCSA Regional CEO group supporting the success of Alaska Native people's...if that isn't inclusive I don't know what is...

Conoco Phillips is a contributor to Challenge Alaska as is many corporate businesses and had their banner out there with employee volunteers to also support this important cause.
