“The Arctic Slope region may have world-class deposits of natural resources, but our
communities still struggle with second-rate infrastructure. From housing and communications
deficiencies to a lack of roads and affordable transportation – it’s time we invest in the
next generation of Arctic infrastructure for the next generation of Arctic people.
My vision for the future of the Arctic is a region where new development drives down the
cost of goods and transportation while also promoting economic growth and creating
jobs. A region where we leverage the opportunities in front of us today to improve
the health, safety and economic well-being of Arctic residents tomorrow.”
