Chugach Alaska Corporation’s Board Of Directors Endorse Senator Murkowski
This week, the Chugach Alaska Corporation’s Board of Directors made a unanimous decision to endorse Senator Lisa Murkowski’s re-election campaign. The Chugach Alaska Corporation is a community-owned Alaska Native Corporation in southcentral Alaska. The Chugach region includes the communities of Cordova (Eyak), Seward, Valdez, Port Graham, Chenega, Nanwalek (English Bay), and Tatitlek, and spans more than 5,000 miles of coastline along the southern tip of the Kenai Peninsula, through the Kenai Fjords, Prince William Sound and the Gulf of Alaska.
“Senator Murkowski believes that Alaska’s greatest resource is its people. She has been an important ally for Alaska Native people, and more broadly for all of Alaska,” said Chugach Chairman Sheri Buretta. “She often works across the aisle on bipartisan efforts in order to bring about policy changes that are in the best interest of Alaska.”
“Our campaign thanks the Chugach Alaska Corporation’s Board of Directors and shareholders for this monumental endorsement,” said Shea Siegert, campaign spokesperson. “The Chugach Alaska Corporation has a first-hand understanding of what it means to truly put Alaskans before politics and results before partisanship. As champions for their shareholders and all of Alaska, our campaign is honored to receive the unanimous support of Chugach Alaska Corporation.”
Chugach Alaska Corporation, formerly known as Chugach Natives, Inc., was first incorporated in 1971-72 through the Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act. Over the past 50 years, Chugach has been a consistent and strong force for its shareholders toward their 100-year vision. Senator Lisa Murkowski worked with Chugach and all the Alaska Native Corporations to defend ANCSA, secure funding for our rural communities to have clean water and sanitation systems, and greatly expand access to broadband in Alaska’s rural communities.
Senator Murkowski and her re-election campaign look forward to announcing additional endorsements as the race progresses.
