Petersburg Pilot -


To the Editor


Made me feel welcome

To the Editor:

I want to thank everyone who helped make my first formal visit to Petersburg as your representative successful. I was lucky to be able to spend a long weekend in Petersburg March 7-10 while the Legislature took a break.

On Friday, about 50 people came to a pizza party at the Legislative Information Office on Gjoa Street. I was also able to meet with various groups around town, including the Petersburg Vessel Owners Association and Petersburg Economic Development Corporation. I also spent time at some of the public facilities around town, including Petersburg’s amazing schools and medical center.

The highlight of my weekend was speaking at the Petersburg Chamber of Commerce banquet. To a person, everyone was extremely friendly and helpful and made me feel welcome.

While my staff and I will be making more trips during the interim, you can always reach me at 877-465-4766 or See you at the Little Norway Festival!

Representative Beth Kerttula
