Letter: Dunleavy’s inauguration


I equate Gov.-elect Mike Dunleavy‘s inauguration by snowmachine in Noorvik to Thomas Jefferson‘s walk to the U.S. Capitol on March 4, 1801, to become the third President of the United States.

Refusing a carriage, he walked, plainly dressed, to perform the oath to that great office.

Well done, Gov.-elect Dunleavy, to choose your wife‘s home town — well done.

Lillian K. Staats
