Letter: Ad disrespects an Alaska hero

The ad on TV with Glenn Hackney comparing Jay Hammond, a great visionary, with our present governor, Sean Parnell, an ex-lawyer and now shill for the oil companies, is so far off base I was disgusted.

If Hammond had Parnell’s job history, he would never even get close to this conflict of interest.

I work in the oil business and want oil to succeed in Alaska but this ad is disrespectful to one of Alaska’s heroes.
