Doyon, Limited Endorses Senator Lisa Murkowski
On September 25, 2010, the Doyon, Limited Board of Directors approved a resolution endorsing Lisa Murkowski as a write-in candidate for the U.S. Senate seat she now holds. This is the first time the regional Native corporation for Interior Alaska has publically endorsed a political candidate.
Doyon, Limited President and CEO Norman L. Phillips, Jr., stated “Lisa Murkowski is a leader who works hard for all Alaskans. Over the past eight years she has built meaningful relationships with powerful Members of Congress that benefit Alaska. Her list of legislative accomplishments for Alaska speaks for itself; supporting natural resource development, oil and gas exploration and production in Alaska; transferring federal lands in Alaska; maintaining a strong military presence in our state; reducing taxes and government interference for business growth and jobs in Alaska; securing energy solutions for Alaska; advocating for high performing schools and building a strong university system in Alaska. We are endorsing Lisa Murkowski because she has a proven track record that benefits all Alaskans.”
