Walker Accepts Berkowitz’s Offer to Help on Gas Pipeline Project if Elected

Dave Donaldson, APRN – Juneau

Falling short of endorsing the candidate, former Republican gubernatorial candidate Bill Walker has accepted an offer to work with Ethan Berkowitz to bring about an all-Alaska gas pipeline.  But that is dependent on Berkowitz’s winning the race against Sean Parnell for the job as governor.

Correspondence between the two released today indicate an offer by Berkowitz for Walker to – quote – “select and lead a team” to make the line a reality.

Walker said in reply that he would be honored to do that.  And on Friday, he said that he’s glad someone is looking at the line with enough specificity and seriousness to make such as offer.

Berkowitz said Walker’s commitment to working on the project is more important than an endorsement in his campaign.
