            Senator Lisa Murkowski made an appearance in Kodiak today (Monday) via live video-conference. She spoke from Washington D.C. to a group gathered for a town hall meeting on health care reform. Murkowski was live and bigger-than-life on the screen of Kodiak's Gerald C. Wilson Auditorium. About 100 people took advantage of the opportunity to listen to the senator, but only a few got the chance to ask her a question on health care reform. About 25 middle and high school students were there to observe civil discourse in action. Others listened to a live broadcast of the meeting on KMXT.

 

In her opening comments Murkowski told the group that she's heard from around 5,000 Alaskans on the subject of health care reform through e-mails, faxes, phone calls and meetings. She said that many people are concerned about the rush to put a plan together and the level of federal spending involved. The senator also said that Alaskans across the state are asking, "What is this going to do for my family?"

            A question and answer session followed the senator's remarks.

 

--          (Murkowski                                        4:29                 "Uh Thanks to...Murkowski thank you.")

 

            The Kodiak meeting marked the senator's first use of long-distance video technology for a town hall-type gathering. She's looking at today's (Monday's) event as a prototype for similar gatherings in other communities.
