Michael Carey’s piece on Representative Young (June 9) was a mean-spirited way to congratulate a man who has dedicated half his life to public service. Carey came off sounding like a bitter old reporter who never got an exclusive. But I digress. …
Don Young, while unpolished and outspoken in his beliefs, has delivered for Alaska since his first days in Washington and continues today. That’s why we keep sending him back. He has done it the Alaska way for the last 40 years, and I for one hope he continues to do so. Happy 80th, Congressman, and go get ’em.
