Great job, Jerry

UFA's new president - will he represent real fishermen who care about their communities, families and salmon habitat or is he going to sell us out to the miners as his recent rhetoric on our Stand for Salmon initiative would suggest?

The Alaska constitution already prevents fisheries allocation by initiative. . . maybe someone at UFA could read it.

Excellent. A smart man well-versed in fishing and also private enterprise. In many ways it's a thankless job, and that makes his service all the more appreciated.
