It’s unfair that Americans pay the highest prescription drug prices in the world! Tell Congress to stop Rx greed and cut drug prices now.

Juneau, AK 99801

This is the site of the territorial Governor Ernest Gruening’s rustic summer home near Dotson’s Landing/Amalga Harbor.  This site is a beautiful setting showing off Alaska’s political and natural history. Territorial Governor Ernest Gruening wrote much of the manifesto for statehood called “The State of Alaska” in 1953 at this site. Governor and then Senator Gruening and his family entertained national and foreign leaders at the cabin, including Adlai Stevenson, Governor Earl Warren, numerous U.S. Senators, and others. This a great location for wildlife view (especially waterfowl), fishing and sightseeing. There are spectacular views across Lynn Canal, and the Peterson Creek “Salt Chuck” is a haven for wildlife.
