My staff and I recently attended Southeast Conference’s annual meeting in Ketchikan. The gathering is a great way to bring together communities, policymakers, and businesses to discuss issues of importance to Southeast Alaska.  At the conference we received updates on energy and economic development projects moving forward in the region.  These included presentations on new hydroelectric projects as well as the Niblack and Bokan Mountain mines on Prince of Wales Island.  These projects will help to create a more sustainable economy in Southeast Alaska and will provide hundreds of needed jobs for our residents.

I’d like to thank the Southeast Conference staff and board of directors for organizing another very productive and informative conference.
