Old Harbor Native Corporation Endorses Lisa Murkowski for U.S. Senate
ANCHORAGE, AK – Last week, the Old Harbor Native Corporation (OHNC) Board of Directors endorsed Lisa Murkowski’s (R-Alaska) re-election to the U.S. Senate. The OHNC Board of Directors highlighted Lisa’s work to strengthen Alaska’s economic development, infrastructure, and fisheries.
“Senator Murkowski gets criticism from the far left, and from the far right, because she is so effective as a moderate. Her ability to strike a workable compromise, with both sides of the aisle is what we need in our politicians, and the ability to work with a variety of stakeholders on any particular issue, is why I am so proud that Old Harbor Native Corporation have endorsed the Senator for reelection. The recently enacted Infrastructure bill, which will provide real benefits to Alaska as a whole, and to much needed rural Alaska, is but one strong example of her ability to get things done. That infrastructure bill was supported by the late Rep. Don Young and by Senator Sullivan who along with Senator Murkowski, had the courage to bring home basic infrastructure funding has been so desperately needed in our State. With her growing seniority on major committees in the Senate, Senator Murkowski has been and will continue to do great things for Alaska and the Nation when she’s reelected,” said Carl Marrs, Old Harbor Native Corporation Chief Executive Officer.
Senator Murkowski’s re-election campaign has now been endorsed by the ANCSA Regional Association, the Alaska Native Village Corporation Association, Arctic Slope Regional Corp., Bering Straits Native Corp., Bristol Bay Native Corporation, Calista Corp., Chugach Corp., CIRI Corp., Koniag Corp., Old Harbor Native Corporation, Sealaska Corp., and over 140 Alaska Native leaders from every corner of the state.
