Opinion: I agree that Sullivan and Trump should be voted out of office

Kudos to Rich Moniak for his good May 24 article.

[Opinion: How Trump’s failures became a story about the ANWR]

I also resent the fact that Sen. Dan Sullivan carefully mixed facts and omissions to make it appear that opposition to oil development in ANWR was opposition to the entire oil and gas industry. I appreciated Moniak pointing out that the timing of opposition from some Democrats and some banks had little to do with the coronavirus. It’s ridiculous for the senator to think Democrats want “Russia to be the world’s energy superpower.” I look forward to Alan Gross teaming with Sen.Lisa Murkowski to inform us accurately. I agree that Sullivan (along with Donald Trump) should be voted out of office in November.

Richard Stokes,
