Mayor Praises 4/25 Decision from Army

 

ANCHORAGE – Mayor Ethan Berkowitz released the following statement on the announcement from the Army of intent to keep the 4/25 Brigade Combat Team at Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson:

 

“It is great news that our friends and neighbors in the 4/25 are here to stay.  They help make Anchorage a strong community and are a pillar of our economy.  We appreciate the contributions they make to Anchorage and the service they provide to the country.  We stand ready to support the members of the 4/25 and their families as they deploy to Afghanistan later this year,” stated Mayor Berkowitz.

 

Mayor Berkowitz formed the Base Economic Analysis Review Working Group (BEAR) to analyze the impacts of potential 4/25 reductions and look for ways to strengthen Anchorage’s partnership with Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson.  The Working Group found that troop reductions would have significant impacts to the small businesses and general economy of North Anchorage and Chugiak/Eagle River.
