I enjoyed a lengthy – and very worthwhile - morning meeting today with former Representative Terry Martin. He retired from the House of Representative after some eighteen years of service. Terry Martin is one of the most decent and honorable persons I have had the pleasure to know. He will be leaving Alaska in July for his new home at Our Lady of the Snows Retirement Community at Belleville, Illinois. Our loss is their gain. Since Terry’s retirement from the legislature he has taken up piano and flute, and has also traveled the world.

Of course, we “talked politics.” We share many similar political points of view. Among other matters (which won’t be reported here), he expressed concern about the legislature spending so much of this year’s unexpected oil revenue on capital projects. Terry had served for several years on the House Finance Committee.
