Letter: GOP is afraid of Peltola

It sure is obvious to me that the Alaska Republican Party is afraid of Mary Peltola. Why else would they send at least three flyers per week to me urging me to not rank her at all on my ballot and “leave her blank?” If I could rank her four times, I would. God knows I don’t need or even want Sarah Palin to ever have any political power in representing Alaska ever again.

Mary Peltola stands for everything I want in a representative. Civil discourse, born and raised Alaskan, experienced legislator, backs infrastructure, fighting trawlers, and most importantly to me, backs a woman’s right to choose.

Please rank Mary Peltola anywhere you like, but do rank her on your ballot Aug. 16.
