The following letter was FAXed to Mayor Mark Begich today, with copies to Anchorage Assembly members:

September 14, 2007
Mayor Mark Begich
Municipality of Anchorage
632 W. 6th Avenue - Suite 830
Anchorage, AK 99501

Dear Mark:

I’ve been reading some of the news articles about eliminating I/M testing. I’m not sure what your position is on this. Obviously, the question is a municipal not a state issue. However, speaking as one of your Anchorage constituents, it seems to me that the current I/M program is no longer needed. As you know, I moved from the smog infested air of Southern California to the clean air of Alaska some years ago. I strongly support clean air.

The good news is that air quality controls are much improved since initiation of the I/M program and older vehicles are going out of service every day. Elimination of this program would save Anchorage consumers a lot of money and hassle.

Please count me in as a constituent who recommends you join in as Mayor with Assembly members in supporting elimination of the current I/M program.

Thank you for your consideration. Hope you’ve had a great summer.

Best Regards,

Bob Lynn

Right on, Bob! This would save the consumers and the state a considerable chunk of change.

Keep up the good work.

So because the I/M program appears to be working really well, we should get rid of it?
