Ethan Berkowitz urges Alaska's voters to participate in presidential caucuses
January 28, 2008
Press Release: Congressional candidate Ethan Berkowitz today urged Alaskans to participate in next week's "Super Tuesday" presidential caucuses.
"This is an exciting time, and Alaskans have a unique opportunity to play our part in helping chart the country's future," said Berkowitz. "I hope that as many Alaskans as possible participate in their party's presidential caucuses. We may not agree on whom to choose, but we can agree that a healthy democracy relies on an active and engaged public."
Berkowitz said he'll be supporting Senator Barack Obama. "We're fortunate that there are great candidates in the field for president this year," said Berkowitz. "And out of that field, I believe Barack Obama is best able to lead the country in a new direction."
Berkowitz said that pointless partisanship is paralyzing Washington and hurting the country. "I may not agree with Senator Obama on all the issues," said Berkowitz. "But like me, he believes that the politics of division have to give way so America can be the country it is supposed to be."
Obama also has a strong Alaska connection. Berkowitz observed that Obama's chief-of-staff in the United States Senate, Pete Rouse, has Alaska roots and understands our state's unique issues.
Berkowitz stressed the importance of Alaskan participation. "Whether you're a Democrat or Republican, please go to your party's website or call their offices and find out how you can get involved in the process," said Berkowitz. "We can't let the Lower 48 have all the fun, and they can't rightly call it 'Super Tuesday' without us."
