  1. Mark, THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH FOR RUNNING AGAINST begich and sullivan !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Those 2 sound like 2 bullies on a political playground . If all you have to campaign about is the faults of your opponent, then you don’t have a leg to stand on. I SO APPRECIATE that your profile in the voter pamphlet didn’t include any mudslinging, because I’m tired of all that’s going on now in these ads on tv. Please let me know who in Fairbanks to contact to get one of your signs !!!!!

  2. Mark, I personally am disgusted with begich and sullivan, they have turned me off with their mudslinging. I usually vote republican but I just cannot get behind sullivan. My daughter and I were discussing you this weekend as a viable alternative to the other candidates and we wondered what your position is on legalizing marijuana, gay marriage, and abortion. I also wondered what, if anything, would you do about education for our youth in alaska.
