Stedman will back ferries, hydro in next term

SITKA, ALASKA Bert Stedman is running unopposed for a second full term in the Alaska senate.
He’ll appear on the November 4th ballot as the lone candidate for Senate District A, which includes Ketchikan, Sitka, Petersburg, Wrangell, and most of the communities in between.
The Sitka Republican was first appointed by governor Frank Murkowski in 2003 to replace Robin Taylor, who left the senate to take a job in state government.
Stedman was elected in his own right in 2004, and joined a rare bi-partisan majority coalition that gave him co-chairmanship of the powerful senate finance committee.
KCAWs Robert Woolsey met with Stedman recently to discuss the senator’s outlook on his next term:
